    Is there a no-hassle wireless solution for SuSE


    I was wondering if there are any wireless adapters or PCI cards, or whatever that will work right out of the box with SuSE. It would have to work with my Linksys router too. Is anything like that in existence? I can give you my specs if need be. EDIT: Using a Desktop so those little card thingies for laptops won't help.

    I found this one http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...122-119&depa=0 Looks pretty good, especially cheap today, and somewhere (I'll try and find the link) someone said it worked out of the box on SuSE 9.1. Any comments? Would this work with my wireless B linksys router? So many questions!

    yes it will work with your router
    and this should have the atheros chipset ....and here is the info for the driverhttp://www.eusso.com/model3/GL2454-V...rosLinuxEn.pdf

    I just remembered something that I saw earlier on powerline technology. Basically, what it is is a plug that goes into your wall next to your router with an ethernet port in it. You string a cable from the router to the plug. Get another plug, put it where you want your connection, insert an ethernet cable from the plug to the comp, and there you have it, a bridge that uses the circuitry of your house to form a network.

    I found some of these from netgear linksys and d-link. Does anyone have expierience with those? The good part is there aren't any drivers that I would need to install! Sounds like they might be the solution i'm looking for.

    Also, I'm really just looking for something that would take almost no work to get runnning on SuSE 9.2

    I am presently posting from a SuSE 9.1 Pro box that flawlessly employs a Netear MA311 802.11b in conjunction with a Linksys 802.11b router.

    WUSB11 v2.6, v2.8 adapters work just fine with Linux

    got linksys wubs11 v2.8 wireless usb adapter to work with a linux 2.6 kernel.

    Here's how I did it.

    Downloaded the CVS tarball from http://at76c503a.berlios.de/support.html,
    followed the instructions here: http://at76c503a.berlios.de/cvs.html

    You should now have a source tree, cd into it, do a ./Configure, then a "make ; make install".

    I added a line "alias wlan0 at76c503-rfmd" to both /etc/modules.conf and /etc/modprobe.conf.

    cd into /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts.
    copy ifcfg-eth0 to ifcfg-wlan0

    edit the ifcfg-wlan0 file and comment out the hardware MAC address line.


    run the command: iwconfig wlan0 essid "WLAN"
    (looks like a good candidate to put into the /etc/rc.d/init.d/network script

    do a /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart. i

    and voila

    you should be up and running.
