    Can not connect to wifi from laptop


    Hey all

    I am running openSuSe 12.1 KDE on my HP DV6 6024tx Laptop. Dual booted with windows 7. I have also tried ubuntu and fedora with exactly the same results. I can see all of the wireless access points, but when i attempt to connect to any of them it fails to connect,(i have tried multiple networks).

    I suspect it is something to do with the drivers, but i do not know how to update them without access to the internet from openSuSe. Is there anyway I can put the drivers on a usb and install from there?. My wireless card is the Intel(R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN.

    Thanks for the help

    Some distros need a complete path for those commands. Fedora is a prime example of this.
    So you can perform those same commands like so:
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci
    /sbin/ifconfig
    /sbin/iwconfig
    And if all else fails, you can use
    Code:
    su -
    <enter root password>
    to gain admin rights, and do the same commands.

    Keep in mind also, you need to substitute *username* with your actual username on your machine.

    There is a bug that causes Intel wifi to lock up routers. It connects but the minute you do anything the connection drops. This definitely affects (*)ubuntu 11.10. The solution in this case is to set your router to b/g only or to update to a newer (3.1 or newer) kernel.
