    Seems to me there are too many possibilities here to give you a definitive answer. I like the possibility that it might have needed just the reboot.

    it didn't work again after disconnect . no matter how many times I try to connect , it always fail .

    Found the way to solve this is to run yast then do some modify in network setting and save . then reboot . after that the wireless can connect .

    you must redo the step again the next time you try to connect .

    I getting sick of this soooo many problem with opensuse 11 (kde 4) . it totally unstable (thinking install back suse 10.3) .

    You can install kde3 alonk with kde4 and log into kde3 until kde4 improves, as it will. They can both be installed simultaneously. Or you can reinstall openSUSE 11.0 and select the kde3 desktop rather than the kde4

    There was a patch pushed out last night for networkmanager. Have you installed it? run 'zypper dup' (no quotes) from a console as su, or run the opensuse updater. You'll need an active Internet connection though.

    I was also having the same problem as yours ... very tired of editing the wireless device in the yast to connect the wireless everytime, but after i updated it with the patch, i edited the wireless device in yast and then restarted the knetworkmanager and delete all the connections saved there, then i created a new one and make check the autoconnect option while creating new connection ( you have to click next a few times to see this option ) and now it works good. it auto connects while i turn on the computer.

    you may try to reinstall the knetworkmanager (and try updating with the patch.)

    Good Luck

    nope it won't work . I give up . I probably will go back to suse 10.3 and wait until 11.1 come out then try again.

    I have been using suse since version 9 until now without any problem . to be frank that I'm quite disappoint with opensuse 11 . soo many obvious bugs here and there that even a novice opensuse user will notice it . but they still released it . it's like no body be bother to test it.
