Suse 10.0, Card Works, Internet Doesn't
Hey. Well, I've just set up a box and am ready to delve into Linux for normal home PC usage. I use a wireless home network here, with other windows PC's on it. Using 802.11g, if that matters, and linksys router. So, the wireless card doesn't have a linux driver, so I've gone through the steps necessary to get ndiswrapper working. It seems to be fine, Suse seems to be recognizing my card. I use KDE, and KWiFiManager picks up the interface, wlan0, and I can scan and pick up networks in range. I read up about configuring it in YaST, so there I went.
Network Devices > Network Card, and set up a wireless card using ndiswrapper module and put in my ESSID, passphrase for WEP encryption, and such, had the configuration saved and activated. But, I get no internet! Going to KWiFiManager, it says "Connected to Network: myNetwork" gives what looks like a MAC address for the access point, but says the Local IP is unavailable.
So, I'm just plain confused. What's going on? Why isn't it connecting, but saying its connecting. The box shows up in my router's DHCP Active IP Table. But no internet!
