    This test will fail as that driver is part of the standard kernel. What will
    show it is

    find /lib/modules -name rtl8187.ko
    Ron@linux-eyro:~> find /lib/modules -name rtl8187.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.34-12-default/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl818x/rtl8187.ko
    Ron@linux-eyro:~> zcat /proc/config.gz | grep 8187
    CONFIG_RTL8187=m
    CONFIG_RTL8187_LEDS=y
    CONFIG_R8187SE=m

    How did you install? If it was from the DVD, then the zypper command might work.
    I do not know if that package is available there.

    I asked earlier if that machine has another wireless device, but didn't see your
    answer. If it does, an rfkill block can be released by unloading the driver for
    that card.

    I installed from a DVD. I copied the zypper command below.

    There are no other wireless devices conected to this computer.

    I'd like to report that I just got a NIC based on this same chipset (for $12 on newegg) and it worked out of the box. It's rock solid and has a very strong signal. The external antenna probably helps with that.

    You need an internet connection for the command to work. Could You connect with ethernet cable and run the command again ?

    Without an internet connection, you need to use YaST => Software Management to
    search for "rfkill" and install it.

    Are you sure the device is OK? As noted above, it should just work. Is it
    mounted internally?

    Thanks. I will keep this one in mind if the other doesn't work out.

    I will need to bring the desktop to another location, but I can do that.

    A search in Software Manager had "no Matches." I will try to figure out how to get it from somewhere else.

    I only assume the device it is ok. It is new from Amazon. It is a usb device.

    Well guys, I tried to install the wireless adapter on a Windows machine and it didn't want to work there either! I guess lwfinger had it, it may just be a defective item to begin with.

    I sure appreciate everyone's help. I will look at getting a replacement and will let you know how it works.

    Thanks!

    Ron
