Thread: Live USB OpenSUSE 11.2 cannot connect wirelessly!

  1. #1

    Default Live USB OpenSUSE 11.2 cannot connect wirelessly!

    I have a non-broadcast network (ad-hoc?) that I attempt to connect to via openSUSE 11.2 running off live USB. It does nothing. It never connects and when I view it with available networks it just shows the name and "insecure" (even though it's WPA2Personal) and no percentage.

    How do I get wireless to work?

    Someone please help because this is my second attempt to get opensuse to work on this laptop (last time was when 11.1 came out). And I REALLY want opensuse on there but until I can get the live USB to work with wireless, I have to stick with fedora.

    Neither one of those help.

    I am able to see networks in the area (though did not try any of them, I believe they're all secure anyways) but for some reason a non-broadcasting network doesn't work.

    On this SAME computer, I've gotten Fedora 11, Windows XP and Moblin 2.0 to all connect with zero issues.
