    Hello Knurpht,

    you wrote
    <I have no idea how much you messed up already.>
    The main problem is that I do not know either.

    I did an update a few days ago, but will (of course)
    follow your suggestion.

    Remark: The boot.log file looks OK, with one exception:
    Warning: ECC is NOT currently enabled by the BIOS, module will NOT be loaded. Either enable ECC in the BIOS, or ...

    Best regards,
    Jan Christian

    FYI- ECC is special error correcting memory that has 9 bits ber byte the extra bit is a check bit and is hardware checked every time the memory is accessed. Since you don't have ecc memory (most don't) no need for any special code to recover/alert you to memory errors because you do not hae that type of memory.

    I don't think this is an error itself but a permissions problem because your account is set up with root permissions.

    You certainly can setup a admin account but it should only be used for administration. But there is already root which does just that.

    Hello gogalthorp,Knurpht,

    I have performed a complete update of the installation,
    and checked the wireless configuration (essid etc). The
    PC shows that there is a connection (blue antenna instead
    of red). Stll not able to connect to the net.
    Further, there is no icon showing signal strength.

    I am still open to suggestions!

    Best Regards,
    Jan Christian

    first check your firewall settings yast > security and settings
    interfaces and make sure your wireless is sett to external zone
    no zone assigned means that your firewall is blocking your wireless

    I just reread your last post and saw that you have a blue antenna which means that you should be connected to your router. mouse over the icon and it will tell you
    a right click will give a menu at the hover over the top pleas report the ip address it gives and the name of your router.

    Hello dale14846,

    security settings are to external zone.

    The blue antenna is at the PC (indicating that
    a wireless network has been found and connected
    to). The wireless network settings are OK
    (SSID, infrastructure, WPA,WPA2-Personal,
    password).

    Hello again,

    I have had a brief look at /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0, the file contains the following non-blank entries (XYZ=''):
    NAME='AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI Express)'
    STARTMODE='auto'
    WIRELESS_AUTH_MODE='open'
    WIRELESS_BITRATE='auto'
    WIRELESS_KEY_LENGTH='128'
    WIRELESS_MODE='managed'
    WIRELESS_POWER='yes'

    I suppose this is OK?

    Best Regards,
    Jan Christian

    No, not OK. AUTH_MODE cannot be "open" with WPA/WPA2.

    Start Yast, Network Devices, Network Settings, tick the wireless, click Delete and confirm that. Now tick it again, and pick Edit. Carefully configure it now, including the security stuff.

    To illustate, here is an example of a ifcfg-wlan0 with WPA2/PSK enabled.

    BOOTPROTO='dhcp4'
    BROADCAST=''
    ETHTOOL_OPTIONS=''
    IPADDR=''
    MTU=''
    NAME='AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express)'
    NETMASK=''
    NETWORK=''
    REMOTE_IPADDR=''
    STARTMODE='auto'
    USERCONTROL='yes'
    WIRELESS_AP=''
    WIRELESS_AUTH_MODE='psk'
    WIRELESS_BITRATE='auto'
    WIRELESS_CA_CERT=''
    WIRELESS_CHANNEL=''
    WIRELESS_CLIENT_CERT=''
    WIRELESS_CLIENT_KEY=''
    WIRELESS_CLIENT_KEY_PASSWORD=''
    WIRELESS_DEFAULT_KEY='0'
    WIRELESS_EAP_AUTH=''
    WIRELESS_EAP_MODE=''
    WIRELESS_ESSID='YOUR_ROUTERS_NAME_HERE'
    WIRELESS_FREQUENCY=''
    WIRELESS_KEY=''
    WIRELESS_KEY_0=''
    WIRELESS_KEY_1=''
    WIRELESS_KEY_2=''
    WIRELESS_KEY_3=''
    WIRELESS_KEY_LENGTH='128'
    WIRELESS_MODE='Managed'
    WIRELESS_NICK=''
    WIRELESS_NWID=''
    WIRELESS_PEAP_VERSION=''
    WIRELESS_POWER='yes'
    WIRELESS_WPA_ANONID=''
    WIRELESS_WPA_IDENTITY=''
    WIRELESS_WPA_PASSWORD=''
    WIRELESS_WPA_PSK='YOUR_WPA_PASSPHRASE_HERE'

    You could just change the YOUR....HERE things in yours.

    Hello Knurpht,

    I have followed your advise, but no success.

    Concerning my setup, please note the following:
    - Network is set up via wpa_supplicant, neither
    Yast2 nor iwconfig will work.
    - I have checked ifcfg-wlan0 two times, it
    appears to be OK now (as per your advice)
    - I have started the system as user, as user
    with root privileges, and as root: No access
    to the net?

    Silly question: Is it conceivable that there
    is some process or some settings made before
    the "disaster" that have survived?

    Would you recommend a new installation from
    scratch?

    Best Regards,
    Jan Christian

    If you want to exclude that, yes. Perform a clean install, get back to us when you start configuring the wireless.
