    Default wireless realtek card not working

    Hello and thank you for reading this.

    How can I get Suse 11.4 to see my wireless adaptor? Would love to get this working so I don't have to upgrade my old XP OS to Win 7.

    We have not quite reached this point.

    Add the Wireless repo (URL:
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.4/) and
    install the packages for rtl8192se-firmware and rtl8192se-kmp-default or
    -desktop, depending on which kernel you run.

    My Toshiba uses the same driver.
    Very easy to go to Realtek site and download driver.
    Simply unpack and 2 step install, reboot, online.
    Both 32 & 64 bit seem to work very well these days.

    Not everyone has the ability or the desire to build their own driver. That is
    why we emphasize the repos whenever possible.

    I am unsure how to install this. Being a new comer to this, I don't know the correct way to compile to the kernel etc. Can you point me in the right direction to do this. This laptop is useless with out the wireless interface working. Thanks.

    I do believe you are correct. Oh well I do have a legit copy of Win 7 Pro I can put on the laptop and get it running. Thank you.
