Thread: Wireless on 11.3 after install via acpi=off

  1. #1

    Default Wireless on 11.3 after install via acpi=off

    The forum got me to install point for which I am pleased beyond what you can imagine.
    Up until win 7 and this L675D I was wired and rather effortlessly I gave network name and PW and I was wireless. I had no expectation it would be that easy in SUSE so again I rely on the forum.
    From that empty desktop before updates (not on line) how do I configure wireless or what must I do?
    my chip is wlan0 Realtek WLAN
    Thanks again
    Butch

    You need to open a terminal and post the result of

    /sbin/lspci -nnk

    Are you absolutely sure
    If you don't get anything, something is sure messed up

    Try again
    Use your mouse to paste the code

    I am still trying to give you information that might help you understand what is preventing me from giving you a
    read out on /sbin/lspci -nnk which continues to say no such file.
    I was looking at you answer to an XP wired question (not related)
    but I am going to post the results of those codes in hopes that it might
    ring a bell beyond "i really have something messed up"

    There is something very wrong here. Try this:

    cat /etc/SuSE-release

    report the result
