    Default Connect to WIFI

    I have enabled the Network Manager Service and no wifi networks appear. I have tried everything in the sticky threads but no luck. Why is so hard to connect to a wifi???

    bash: /usr/sbin/rfkill: No such file or directory
    Try to install rfkill from DVD and post
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/rfkill list all
    Code:

    rfkill should be on the DVD/USB-Stick you installed your openSUSE from.

    So open Yast---Software and search.

    Seriously guys why is so difficult just to connect to a WiFi?? I have enabled Network Services, the icon appears in the status bar but no wifi networks are there. Scam through terminal works. It shows me some wifi networks..

    That's a good sign. Lets see what NetworkManager wifi status looks like
    Code:
    nmcli g
    For reference, I have
    Code:
    ~> nmcli g
    STATE      CONNECTIVITY  WIFI-HW  WIFI      WWAN-HW  WWAN     
    connected  full          enabled  disabled  enabled  disabled 
    ~>
    Also...
    Code:
    nmcli d
    For reference, I have
    Code:
    ~> nmcli d
    DEVICE  TYPE      STATE      CONNECTION 
    wlan0   wifi      disconnected --
    eth0    ethernet  connected  DHCP       
    lo      loopback  unmanaged  --
