    Default Please forgive the off topic post!

    As a self employed small business consultant. I depend on my laptop for work and more.
    I use Amarok, OpenOffice, Gimp, Digikam, Kaffeine, Acroread and much more.

    I depend on WiFi connections at home and out on the field ie: Coffee shops, airport and hotels.

    I have been a Suse Linux user since ver. 7. I am currently using OpenSuSE 11.1 KDE i64.
    Lately I find myself doing a lot of fixing and making adjustments on my laptop.
    As a result, my consulting work is suffering.

    I am currently having an issue with NOT being to connect to external WiFi connections.
    I have spent days unsuccessfully trying to find the SOLUTION.

    Do you know a Linux consultant I can hire?
    I am looking for Linux Professional that knows what he is doing and (for a fee)can help me fix the occasional blimps that I come across.

    Drop me a note if you know and are willing to recommend someone.

    Thanks,

    Please stick to the forums rules and don't cross post.

    It's an annoyance to other users.

    Nothing wrong with the post I doubt (though I am not in a position to say), but nevertheless, please do not cross-post.

    Also, you might want to request that a mod change it so it doesn't publicise your email address? If people have suggestions, they can PM you.

    You might try installing the Gnome network manager -- works a treat for me where the KDE NM doesn't. Or are u using Gnome already? Indeed, I was taking my laptop on site to jobs and running KDE. It was a disaster -- always playing up. I re-installed openSUSE, switched to Gnome and it's sweet as a nut now. I think the KDE interface is not yet mature enough to be used in a "business" context (sadly). Maybe another year or two

    Wicd is also good (and a bit less drastic than DE surgery...)
