    Ok great so I trashed the kernel because rolling back required a cd 1 in which case linux wasn't recognizing my cd rom drive. So I am gonna install suse 10 all over again. Fun Fun.

    LMAO. Thanks for the compliment . Ever thought of recruting for Queen's?

    As for the ipw driver, check here: http://ipw2100.sourceforge.net/firmware.php?fid=4

    It's under an Intel license so you probably won't find an rpm unless it came with you distro. I know you have Suse OSS so my guess is the ipw driver only comes with eval (I would check but I messed up some stuff as usual). A README and INSTALL come with it.

    Good luck!

    I am having a similar problem and I believe I know what the solution is. I have a Linksys card with an Athreos chipset. SuSE 10 OSS doesn't support this chipset by default, as it says in the readme thing at the end of the install. It mentions you need this to get it to work: kernel-default-nongpl and it mentions a web address that doesn't have anything on it. After some googleing I found this page: http://www.novell.com/products/linux...lt-nongpl.html However it has no instrustions on where to download or how to install.

    So thats where I'm stuck at tonight. I've tried ndiswrapper and the madwifi driver but neither are supported by the 2.6 kernel. I have not internet on linux in two weeks. I HAVE TO USE WINDOWS. THE HORROR. Someone please tell me where I can find, and how can I install the kernel-default-nongpl thing.
    There is no problem so complicated that you cannot find a very simple answer to it if you look at it in the right way

    ftp://mirror.mcs.anl.gov/pub/suse/i3...13-15.i586.rpm

    The link appears to be invalid.

    However I found this!!!

    http://ftp.idilis.ro/mirrors/ftp.sus...13-15.i586.rpm

    I believe this is the right file.


    Thanks everyone

    Sorry, I just realized you are using 9.3. That's for 10.0. Yours is here: ftp://mirror.mcs.anl.gov/pub/suse/i3...4-20a.i586.rpm

    I am using 10.0. I really don't know why that link didn't work (the link connection not the package) however the link I found worked great and I am now posting this via SuSE 10.0. I reccomend anyone with a wireless card with an ahtreos chipset use this because it worked flawlessly for me.
