    Default another noob...another wireless issue!!

    i have a hp dv5 1120 and i installed opensuse 11.0 on it. i still have vista though. i ran through the list of things the sticky asks me to do but i seem to have encoutered an issue on step 2:
    1)/usr/bin/lsusb gave me
    Bus 005 Device 003: ID 03f0:171d Hewlett-Packard Wireless (Bluetooth + WLAN) Interface [Integrated Module]

    2)when i went into drmesg|less the entry under bus 5 didnt make any sense to me, this is what it said:
    uhci_hcd 0000:00:1d.2: UHCI Host Controller
    uhci_hcd 0000:00:1d.2: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 5
    uhci_hcd 0000:00:1d.2: irq 16, io base 0x0000a060
    usb usb5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    hub 5-0:1.0: USB hub found
    hub 5-0:1.0: 2 ports detected
    usb usb5: New USB device found, idVendor=1d6b, idProduct=0001
    usb usb5: New USB device strings: Mfr=3, Product=2, SerialNumber=1
    usb usb5: Product: UHCI Host Controller
    usb usb5: Manufacturer: Linux uhci_hcd
    usb usb5: SerialNumber: 0000:00:1d.2
    ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:1d.3[C] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18
    PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:1d.3 to 64

    I have already put the required firmware for my WLan, which i downloaded,into the /lib/firmware(according to vista i have the Intel Wireless WiFi link 5100).
    What seems to be the prob?
    Thanks in advance!!

    someone is likely to advise you that 11.0 would be deemed "elderly" by now; 11.1 has been out for a year, and 11.2 is due out before Xmas;

    try reading this recent post

    wireless not working : all details given as asked in sticky - openSUSE Forums

    it seems to cover the background issues

    it seems to that for that person, the leading wireless expert lwfinger said "What I suggested is that you try the compat-wireless package for your kernel."

    and another expert akhoelth posted on how to try to ensure the correct package for this

    which was very helpful of him too
