    Question Need help connecting to router


    Now, I've finally got my drivers installed properly, thanks to all that helped! But now I don't know how to connect to my router to get on the net, I've tried YaST I've put in the correct everythings for it, and I don't get any connection! I tried firefox and everything!

    I think this is where I went wrong, but I don't know how to sort this out:

    Code:
    linux:~ # ifstatus wlan-bus-usb
    ERROR: Interface is not available
    Thank you for any help!

    Can you post the results of
    Code:
    /sbin/ifconfig
    And also are you using any form of encryption on your router?

    How do I find the results? I found the file, but I have no idea what to do with it!
    No there's no encryption on the router, it's open.

    I still haven't been answered on this, can someone please have a look?
    (I'm guessing by this that nothing is showing up, is that right?)

    Need to configure

    Your eth interfaces don't have IPv4 addresses assigned. I would expect one of them to have as the second line something like this:
    Code:
    inet addr:192.168.1.100  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
    See if your menu system has something like this:
    Start -> System -> Configuration -> Configure Your Computer -> (password) -> Network & Internet
    If not, you can just edit the little text configuration files in /etc/sysconfig/, but you may be more comfortable with the menu method.

    You didn't say anthing about your network connection (router?, cable modem?, etc.) but it's likely you have a DHCP server, so just pick the DHCP option when you see it. If that doesn't work, you'll need more information.
