Wireless needs to be reconfigured every day
I configured the wireless on my dell d600 laptop with YAST using the "Traditional method with ifup". I needed to do this because I was not able to authenticate with my office wireless with networkmanager.
The problem is that when I connect to my home wireless with kinternet then return to work, I need to re-do the entire config process with Yast.
Is there an easier way to switch between networks?

Well I guess I can try to write a script for Wireless though Ive never used WifI in linux.
To write the script its real easy so I guess you can better do it yourself.
Goto Terminal and do:
nano -w setup_wifi_home
Now you make a new file that is called setup_wifi_home
Enter as text:
And then just the commands you run to normaly make Wifi work again when you are home. (I guess iwconfig something something)
When you exit + save (cntrl + x, y, [enter])
you can run that script by entering in console ./setup_wifi_home
And when you have a tab finger you have just to enter set[tab button]_h[tab button][enter button]
And then its done.
Linux owns Harder then you think
If you still cant work it out I guess I have to help you in a live chat. Since well almost always when I am at LinuxForums i am at work XD
