    Default Wireless connection not working after update to OpenSuse 13.1 from 12.3

    Hello to everyone.

    I've got the following problem: I've updated system to 13.1 from 12.3 and now I can not connect to wireless network. Everything was great before update and network manager worked without any problems.

    I am using, HP Envy m6-1221er laptop, OpenSuse 13.1 64bit (not fresh install, 12.3 was updated to 13.1 according to this manual http://en.opensuse.org/Upgrade without any problem/warning/error)

    The situation could be described as follows:

    1) pressing left button on NM in tray
    2) pressing title of desired network
    3) NM starts connection
    4) but after a minute I've got "Connection failed"
    5) the desired network title disappears from list of available network.

    This is the common flow. I've tried and other variants to:

    - removing/adding connection from System Settings > Network Settings > Wireless and so on.
    - I've tried to USE Yast2 to setup wireless connection - with no luck
    - disabling / re-enabling NM

    One more thing, sometimes after rebooting NM creates a connection, but just for a 1-2 minutes, during this time I could

    ping 8.8.8.8

    but could not

    ping google.com

    So, it looks like a DNS problem. But then NM loses connection and it could not be established again.

    Any suggestions ? Do you need some output from dmesg, lspci ?

    Using 'lspci -nn' combines the two outputs and makes posting easier.

    Apparently, there is a problem with the RT3290 in the standard 13.1 kernel. In a
    similar thread entitled "Ralink Wifi rt3290 is not working on opensuse 13." in
    this forum, the poster followed the instructions at
    http://kernel.opensuse.org/packages/openSUSE-13.1 to get a later kernel.

    Yeah, looks like the correct way to fix it is to update the kernel version. I've updated it to 3.12.7-2.1

    Want to add one more thing. Probably I've used not the best way to update kernel, I don't remember exactly but I've downloaded few required rmps from somewhere here:

    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...13.1/standard/

    Add installed them via yast2. After some time, when official kernel-3.11.10 was ready to be installed via yast2 I've faced the problem that I couldn't autoupdate system via Apper for the reason of 'can't resolve dependencies'. In the end I've decided to remove kernel 3.12 from OS, and installed 3.11.10.

    Finally, now I have kernel 3.11.10 installed directly from yast2, so this is officially supported kernel for openSuse 13.1 and I could confirm that there is no problem with Wi-Fi. Also I solved all problems related to autoupdate, and now my system is up to date.
