    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?

    Can you post the script, so that I can see what it looks like?

    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:
    #! bin/bash
    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
