    Default USB NICs and how to install Drivers etc.

    I've just installed the newest version of SUSE and want to use one of two USB NICs that i have.
    the first is a netgear WG111v2 and the other is
    a belkin f5d7050ver.4000. I've tried the belkin and can see the network, enter the passphrase,etc. but see no place where i can "connect" as in windows. havent tried the netgear. Can't seem to find linux drivers for either after searching quite a few linux driver/support sites. r these cards usable and if so can u help me set them up. your help is appreciated.

    Netgear USB might work w ndiswrapper

    The Belkin: are you using ifup or network manager?

    If you're using traditional method with ifup, you won't see a connect button. You simple set it to connect at boot time or on demand; then if "on demand" you have to run the ifup command when u want it up.

    Thank you very much for your reply. It made me focus on the belkin and I am now up and running. I'm using the belkin to send this now. i was using the ifup but after setting it to "net manager" i was able to play with authentication settings and connect. thanks again for your time/reply.
