    Default Wireless Help

    I'm running openSUSE 11.1 with KDE.
    The card I'm using is a DWL G650+ AirPlusG+ Cardbus.
    I've downloaded the firmware (tiacx111c16) and after i run /usr/sbin/iwconfig it gives a result like the one in the sticky.
    However when i put sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan it shows:

    lo Interface doesn't support scanning

    etho Interface doesn't support scanning

    wlano No scan results

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    1 first, please make sure the driver is loaded
    2 then please provide the output:
    ifconfig -a
    BTW: what you mean " it gives a result like the one in the sticky"

    Ahh yes so that was what i was forgetting (the driver)
    Thank you

    Is there an alternative to getting the windows driver and using ndiswrapper?

    And by an output like the sticky i meant like the one in the "My wireless doesn't work - a primer on what I should do next" thread, ie one that showed that the card was working.

    Yes, and if you want to use WPA, it's the only alternative at the moment AFAIK.
