    Question KNetworkManager troubles

    Hello!

    I have openSUSE 11.0 (i586) + 4.0.4 (KDE 4.0.4 >= 20080505) "release 15.2", WiFi - Atheros

    How to find WiFi in KNetworkManager?
    When I open the window "New Connection -> wlan0", there is no WLAN in the list of networks. While Wireless Access Point works normal, and I really know, that there is network (when I had OpenSUSE + Gnome, network was found normal).

    My Wireless Access Point has such setting:
    Mode: Access Point
    SSID: sabo
    Channel: 1
    Authentication: Open System
    WEP: Enabled
    WEP Encryption: 64Bit
    Key Type: Hex (10 char.)

    I'm sorry, maybe, this question already was here, it's difficult for me to search in English.

    Default Re: KNetworkManager troubles

    Does the command

    sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan

    show your AP? If not, perhaps you have not installed the firmware, or
    maybe your wireless switch is off. If it does show your AP, then you
    are not seeing it in NM because of a problem in mac80211 that has
    since been fixed.

    Even though your AP does not show in NM, you can still configure it as
    long as you know the Essid and the encryption details.
