    PLEASE help me configure wireless network....


    Hi everyone,

    I've trying for weeks to get a comprehensive explanation on how to configure a wireless network, so if any of you guys can explain to me how to connect to my home network (D-Link ADSL router), I'd be very thankful...

    Note. Please make it as simple a possible coz my knowledge in Linux and its shell commands is essentially zero....

    Need to know what wireless card you are using. (It may or may not work with Linux). The exact make, model and version will be very helpful. Is it pci? usb? PCMCIA? 802.11B? 802.11G? The more information you can provide about your hardware the better.

    Look in Yast. I haven't been in front of a SuSE machine in a while but it should be there under networking or something. Have a good look in yast for it. I've used it to configure networks in the past.

    I have exactly the same wireless card as you do in my laptop. What you need to do is download and install the ipw-firmware file. Get it from ftp://fr.rpmfind.net/linux/SuSE-Linu...3-3.noarch.rpm

    Just install the above file and use ipw2200 as your driver for your card (it is the default setting in Yast2)
