Thread: Disabling internal wifi + wireless hotspots

    Default Disabling internal wifi + wireless hotspots

    This is 2 questions.

    I'm running openSUSE 13.1 on a Toshiba Satellite. I have a Panda USB wireless, and a realtek rtl8188ee. I would like to disable the realtek rtl8188ee. How would I go about doing that?

    Next question. Same openSUSE version and same laptop. I always take my laptop to school with me, a college with wifi. It has one of those webpages that you have to confirm you're a student before going on other websites once connected. The internet works just fine on my own wifi, and my friends wifi, and it says it's connected when I go to my college, but the webpage doesn't load. So does anything special need to be done to get wifi to work on openSUSE 13.1 for hotspots?

    Thank you for any replies.

    You can unload the driver, or you can disable the connection using the NM
    applet. In my case, I do not allow any of my configured connections to be
    automatically connected. That way, I can select which interface and hotspot I
    wish to use.

    With an intermediate website needed for permission to use the connection, you
    make it the regular way, and launch a browser. With most such setups, yu will
    initially be redirected to the authentication page.
