    Default no internet connection - openSUSE 11.4 - 64 bits - KDE

    Hello,

    Last week I upgraded to openSUSE 11.4 from 11.3. Under 11.3 64 bits I had a wonderful wireless internet connection.
    Since the new installation, and despite the friendly help on the Dutch forum, I do not succeed to get my computer on line.
    I'm glad that for the time being, I can use my Windows XP SP3 dual boot system.

    Here are a few tests I ran :

    Code:
    DesktopLinux:~ # uname -r                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
    2.6.37.1-1.2-desktop
    Code:
    DesktopLinux:~ # iwconfig

    Although I run this command as root, I get the message Encryption key : off

    What struck me is that apparently both drivers rt2500usb AND rt73usb are loaded. Is that necessary ?
    What struck me as well is that I can't get my encryption key when issueing the command iwconfig as root: it seems to be off ??

    Then when I studied the hardware-info (via YAST), I got also this :

    So, I think this is all I can do so far.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    hi

    this command line is for viewing the routing table of your system where we can see your default gw

    can you give us the result of the command

    Code:
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    to see if you have a dns config

    sorry for my english....

    Thumbs up Re: no internet connection - openSUSE 11.4 - 64 bits - KDE

    OK, I found it.

    In networkmanager I chose (hard-ware tab) the rt25usb driver instead of the rt73usb driver (as I had to do with openSUSE 11.3).

    So, now I got internet coonection, and my problem is solved.
