(In reply to comment #1)
Thank you for the report. AFAIK the sysconfig's network scripts [1] don't use
/proc/net/wireless . There are 2 supported options to configure the wlan
adapter. Either with Network Manager or with traditional ifup/ifdown method.
Both configurable in Yast->Network_Devices->Network_Settings. I am running
Intel 4965 both on 11.2 and 11.3 Milestone1 without problems. Would it be
possible to try 11.2 upgrade ? It is pretty stable and supports many new HW.

I do have a 11.2 partition on my notebook too, but for various reasons I'm
still using 11.1 and completely switching to 11.2 is not yet an option.
updating 11.1 shall not break a funcional wlan setup...


more info: I'm always using traditional network setup, no Network Manager
(also, not an option;)

more tracing shows:

get_iface_type() in scripts/functions returns "eth" for my wlan0 device because
/sys/class/net/wlan0/wireless does not exist:

so INTERFACETYPE==eth which must be overridden by WIRELESS=yes now :-((


does this help to figure out what did change ?
