Thread: WEP Passphrase

    Default WEP Passphrase

    Acer One with Atheros ath5k AR2425 chip. AR5001. DHCP.
    OpenSuse 11.1 with KDE4 (downloaded yesterday).

    See access point but cannot connect to Internet.

    I have gone through the stickies and read other probs.

    iwconfig shows a good connection to my access point.

    Network is unreachable.

    In YAST I can see my access point too. I have put in the correct passphrase. I have tried the hex key as well.

    Saving Network Configuration seems to complete OK.

    In toolbar network icon it says Network Management disabled (greyed out).

    I cannot find Network Management anywhere, just Yast.

    You can turn NetworkManager on with YaST. Select Network Device =>
    Network Settings => Global.

    You should definitely use the hex key. Next time, please post the
    output of iwconfig and 'iwlist scan'.
