    you need that command in order to get wireless working - at least from the cmd line, not sure about GUI tools. and especially not sure about SUSE.

    anyway, the package name that contains that command is wireless-tools, so look for that in your SUSE software repos and install it. i guess you use zypper to install packages in SUSE? Not sure. and then you could use YaST to configure it, I believe. There is some pretty comprehensive documentation here.

    it looks like your "ifconfig" output got clobbered. i just want to see what network devices you have. show the output of this cmd:

    Code:
    ls /sys/class/net
    you should have at least "lo" and maybe "eth0", and just maybe "wlan0" or similar.

    Way off track.
    I don't see the relevance of any of this if it's a USB device.
    "lsusb -vv" and the details of the device can be cut and pasted.
    "ifconfig -a" will show a device that's not configured - e.g wlan0.

    On openSUSE "YaST2 network" will also allow the device to be configured.

    Alright, iwconfig and ifconfig with /sbin/ in front didn't work, so here the are without sbin.

    Also, I tried configuring with YaST, but it didn't work. The device itself lit up, but I still had no network connections whatsoever. Network Manager didn't work either. I might be setting it up wrong, though.

    that's okay, the commands must reside in /bin after all (or somewhere else in your path). not sure why they didn't output anything in your post containing the wireless script output. perhaps the script *expects* them in /sbin...

    Also, I tried configuring with YaST, but it didn't work. The device itself lit up, but I still had no network connections whatsoever. Network Manager didn't work either. I might be setting it up wrong, though.
    i myself personally don't like NetworkManager b/c you relinquish some control over connecting to networks. but that call is up to you. while troubleshooting, though, i might try disabling it temporarily, at least. See this SUSE doc on that. normally, at a terminal as root, i'd simply have to do:

    Code:
    service NetworkManager stop
    now it appears that your wireless device ("wlan0") is up, the kernel driver ("rtl8192cu", though I have no idea if that's the right one), and the firmware ("rtlwifi/rtl8192cufw.bin") is loaded...so now try to use the wireless device. a good test is a quick wireless scan - same thing most WiFi GUI applets do, but this will be a command line test. try this:

    Code:
    iwlist wlan0 scanning
    the "iwlist" command is provided by same wireless-tools package that provides iwconfig, so you should have it. you'll probably have to be root to run it.

    if you see your ESSID in the output (or *any* ESSIDs) then your device is at least working to some degree. see if you can connect to it manually:

    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0 essid blah
    then enter your encryption key, if any, e.g.:
    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0 key *******************
    you may also need to enter the mode, e.g.:
    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
    but it often figures that out for itself.

    if all that works, try getting an ip address, e.g.:

    Code:
    dhclient wlan0
    then check your results with:
    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0
    also, check if you have DNS and a default gw:

    Code:
    #dns
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    
    # gw
    route -n
    if you have no luck attaching to the essid or getting an ip address, go to the router - do you have admin access to it, i hope? now you have to answer for yourself some questions about it:

    does your wireless router do any kind of MAC filtering or anything, that you know of? Can you log onto it and review logs, and see the client attempting to connect? Is DHCP enabled on the wireless router?

    btw, any SUSE studs out there please feel free to chime in! i am only bungling along with terminal commands with which i am familiar...

    Today I noticed wlan0 was not configured after I did a "zypper dup".
    As root I used "YaST2 network" to configure the wireless, filled in all the details including the WPA-PSK key.
    When YaST2 finished I had it all up and running, wpa_supplicant was also running.
    Code:

    Okay, I used the terminal method of manually configuring and connecting and that appeared to work from the terminal. iwconfig wlan0 showed that I had connected to my router. However, I couldn't enter the key through the terminal. It always gave an invalid argument error. So I entered the key from YaST and nothing seemed to happen. Apparently I'm connected to the router but not to the internet. So now what do I do?

    1. Is encryption even enabled on the router? Check that first.

    2. Did you get an ip address? a default gw? DNS settings?

    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    route -n
    3. can you show the command you ran to enter the key (without showing your actual key), and any output you get from the command?
