I'm reposting this, because I think that it's been pushed down far enough
that people aren't seeing it. Basically, I've got my internal wireless card
setup as my eth-pcmcia-0 device. Someone said something about how it should
be bridged to eth1 and then I can use it. It doesn't seem to be doing that.
Can anyone help?
I'm sorry that I haven't yet got this working... I really do appreciate
3.1) fire up yast2
configure network card as pcmcia (DHCP settings might be
troublesome, use hardcoded IP, just for testing at least)
YaST2 doesn't give me the option to configure the "Harris Semiconductor"
(my wireless card) that it detects as PCMCIA. If I click "Configure", it
goes straight to the screen where you set the IP address. I can click
"Configure" where it says "Other (not detected)" and then I get the
choice of a PCMCIA device. But I don't know how to hook that up to my
internal wireless card.
If someone could point me in the right direction here, I would really
appreciate it. (Currently, the wireless is configured as eth1 and not as
Thats exactly where you need to go - Others/Pcmcia - and set up config for
After it got pcmcia-ethX device, it will be bridged as ethY, and on
restart of all things it will know that you got it..
Basic simple test - is that after you got it all - ifconfig should
display ethY configured (might miss IP though, if wireless gateway is
unreachable, but rest should be there)
I've now got a eth-pcmcia-0 device that was configued in YaST2, but I don't
see that it was bridged anywhere. Is that something that I need to do or
should it be done automatically? Here is the output of ifconfig:

eth0 is my ethernet card (which is working correctly). It doesn't appear
that the internal wireless card was "bridged" like you referred to. So...
what do I do now?
