Summary: wlan configuration does not work
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: RC 1
Platform: i686
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Network
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: olesen.lars@xxxxxxxxx

I have a wireless nic : Allnet 0271, which is supported by prism54, and yast
detects it correctly.
I have also downloaded the firmware for the card, and it is loaded.
But if I set network (in yast configuration) to use ifup I can see that the
config script for the interface is not found.
I then made a symlink called for instance ifcfg-eth2 to
/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan...... , and then the network script
executes the script.
I can see (using iwevent) that the nic issues an associate request to the
wireless router which is accepted, but dhcp does not work on the wireless
interface. If I try to set route and ip manually for the interface I still
don't get a connection. The wired ethernet port connects to the same router
with no problems.

Note: I am not using knetworkmanager because I saw a bug report stating that
there was a problem with knetworkmanager and prism54.
Also when I did try using knetworkmanager I coule see that the nic never
associated eith the router.

I am using KDE.
