Thread: Using NDISwrapper in OpenSuse 11.4

  1. #1

    Default Using NDISwrapper in OpenSuse 11.4

    Ok, so I have a Realtek RTL8187SE wireless card that out of the box will only connect to Open Wireless Networks. I need to know how (and if) I can install NDISwrapper in OpenSuse 11.4 (KDE), anytime I have ever used a KDE distro, it seemed NDISwrapper didn't work I really want to give OpenSuse a shot, but this is one of the things holding me back. I'm am currently posting from the LiveCD and it's very nice! Hope I will be able to do a full install!

    With WEP
    You must enter the complete hexadecimal key! Use copy and paste!

    Did you put in the encryption hex kay and NOT a phrase.

    The RTL8187SE works with WEP, WPA and WPA2. Any problems are not in the driver,
    but in the configuration.

    If you log into your AP and look at the wireless key, then you can get it.

    My dad doesn't allow me to mess with the router settings I know the key in regular format though.
