Thread: Wireless 802.11g USB 2.0 card

  1. #1

    Default Wireless 802.11g USB 2.0 card

    Hi, I have been looking for one of these.

    However before I buy one I want to make sure it works with suse (10.0)

    I've had problems with modems before (only windows drivers), and it took me a while to track one down that would work.

    anyways, I don't want to have to go through the same thing again when looking for a wireless card.

    again it's very specific, an 802.11g USB wireless card (compatible with suse linux 10.0).

    So could someone give me a list of hardware that meets the criteria?

    thanks!

    very helpful resources you've posted!

    well I've finally got it, so how do I configure it? I don't see a 'wireless' listing in yast.

    Code:

    you may need to reboot and cofigure via Yast

    heh, it must be a newer suse distro command. though that might be one of the main things I'm lacking to update my OS.

    on the other note, so I just have to get the ralink firmware?

    You must be super user in the terminal. Type su then hit enter
    enter your password (it doesn't display as you type)

    then type the zypper command

    - no zypper

    - no ralink-firmware

    - no (more) support

    - no support for WPA with legacy drivers and default tools

    BTW:

    If it is really a rt2570 chip, no firmware would be needed.

    I never noticed 10
    Duh!

    Do you think maybe it's SLED? @cliff-s ??
    What OS is this exactly. Is it open or enterprise?

    @Akoellh
    Your expertise in this field is without question, but could you be a little less cryptic for our friend?
