Thread: Setting up Wireless Internet Connection

  1. #1

    Default Setting up Wireless Internet Connection

    Ok. I bought myself a new laptop. I have a desktop connected to a wireless router. I can't seem to figure out how to connect this laptop to the wireless router. In windows this is easy. Search for wireless networks, put in your passwords and your done. I can't seem to figure out how to get this done in 11.1.

    Should I use NetworkManager or ifup?

    In Network Manager I have 1 connection Type 802-3-ethernet automatic configuration.

    In Yast2/ifup I have User Controlled by NetworkManager. Global Options, Overview, Hostname/DNS are all default. Routing I have a default gateway of 10.0.0.1 (the address of the wireless router) and one routing table setup using device eth0.

    So any idea what I need to do to get this wireless internet connection to work?

    I can only see the one device for ethernet from your post as below.

    Do you have any other connection in your Network Manager? If no any other one, your wireless device of laptop should not detected by opensuse.

    click on "Sticky: Getting Your Wireless to Work"

    if that doesn't get you going click on the next one: "Sticky: My
