Wireless Card IP nightmare
Forum n00b, anyway...
Linksys wireless card
installed the drivers using rpm installation of drivers from www.linuxant.com
KWiFiManager says the card works and detects the network
YaST lets me configure the card for DHCP or static
"Local IP: unavailible"
I ran iwspy <my wireless card> <IP address of my router> and it returned
something along the lines of IP address not working with DHCP
I setup a static IP for my card, using default subnet masks and DNS servers
iwspy " " returns failed
tried to simply ping the router
The router recognizes my compy's MAC address, but not the IP address I assigned it statically.
I have 20 days until this 30 day trial license is up. I'd like to get this resolved before then.
Any help would be a god-send.

I haven't used linuxant's driverloader software, but your problem may stem from the fact that the driver is not properly loaded or the incorrect driver is being used. What does iwconfig return? Also have you setup any encryption correctly?
A cheap fix would be to try installing ndiswrapper as it is free and doesn't come with the restrictions of linuxant's software. To install ndiswrapper, launch yast -> "Install and remove software" and search for ndiswrapper. Now copy yuor WinXP drivers to your home directory and execute the following in terminal:
su - <--- become root cd /home/your_username/drivers <--- where you saved the drivers ndiswrapper -i driver_name.inf ndiswrapper -l <-- should return driver present, hardware present ndiswrapper -m modprobe ndiswrapperLife is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

Well, since I'm in SuSE linux now, I guess it works
I wonder why the linuxant software didn't work...oh well, I don't have to pay for anything then.
