    Default I am not able to connect to my wireless network.

    Hello everyone,

    I just installed opensuse 11.4 and i'm not being able to connect to my wireless lan. It recognizes my network, but when I click "ok" after typing the password it is like I had done nothing, no connection is set at all. Any ideas to solve this issue? I guess it is probably some configuration stuff since my notebook recognizes all available wireless networks. Sorry about the lack of details, but that is all I got.
    Thank you all.

    Now that I restarted my pc, when I try to connect to my network it keeps opening the "Secrets for 'my lan'" window and then, after something like three times, it goes back to no connection.

    I am also not able to connect to the internet the same way in wireless lan.

    My device uses:

    /sbin/lspci -nnk
    0c:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection [8086:4222] (rev 02)
    Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1020]
    Kernel driver in use: iwl3945

    Let know if someone knows the fix.

    That device is working. I have a laptop with it and I can tell you I never used a Linux distro yet that it didn't work on out of the box.
