    Default D-link DWA-142 not working in 11.0

    I'm struggling to get my D-link DWA-142 Wireless USB card to work in openSUSE 11.0. I have installed ndiswrapper and ndisgtk and I used the drivers v1.30(*.inf, *.cat, *.sys) in my CWindows... folder to install the drivers. After looking in Yast it seams that the hardware are OK but there is no sign of life from the card. Any suggestions on what I should do?

    Post the output of 'uname -a', iwconfig, 'iwlist scan', route,
    and 'ndiswrapper -l', and we'll have a clue what to suggest next.

    I was able to solve this myself. I just changed from WEP to no security and connected with Knetworkmanager. Case closed.
