    Default Cisco 350 Bridge Series

    Hello,
    I need some help I have install opensuse 11 twice and I still can not connect to internet using wireless ( WIRE NETWORK WORKS ONLY) I have two wireless routers a linksys and a cisco 350.
    The Linksys is connected to my DSL router and the Cisco is used just as an access point.

    Both devices are shown as being seeing in the network but every single time I put the wep key on both instances it will not work.

    With other distros my linksys is the only one that works it fails on the CISCO 350.

    In previous releases the cisco has worked and i do not understand why it does not now.

    In my windows machine i have no problem it works on both.

    Would anybody help me out please? Any idea why?

    Thank you very much.

    Regards,
    Mario

    When you put in the WEP key, I hope you are using a hexadecimal key, and not a
    passphrase. There are several, incompatible ways to convert a given phrase to a
    WEP key. Fortunately, WPA fixed that problem.

    What does the output of a dmesg command say about your wireless? That is always
    the first place to start.

    If you are sure that the WEP key is correct, you need to use wireshark to
    capture network traffic to see why you cannot connect. You didn't mention what
    wireless adapter you are using, but if the output of lsmod shows that mac80211
    has been loaded, then you should post the problem and the critical part of the
    wireshark dump on linux-wireless@vger.kernel.org.

    Thank for your reply.

    Yes I do enter the wep key in a Hex form. I am using a compaq nc6000 laptop.

    Here it the messages I get from the supplicant log and messages.

    1) WPA Supplicant log

    Trying to associate with 00:40:96:57:15:aa (SSID='****' freq=2437 MHz)

    Hello Larry,

    Larry as far as the output of lsmod yes MAC80211 tha comes up.
    As i mention before the mireless networks are show or seen by the system is just connecting to them is the problem.

    Would you lease let me know how to use wireshark I tried to configure but I could not get it to work I am new to this kind of tool.
    Hope all this information helps.
    Regards,
    Mario

    The best use of wireshark would be with a second computer with a wireless
    interface. If you do not have another available, then I would just post the
    dmesg output with a complete explanation on linux-wireless@vger.kernel.org.
