Thread: opensuse kde + wireless compatibility

    Default opensuse kde + wireless compatibility

    Hello,

    I am new to opensuse

    I would like to make a livedvd of the kde distribution to test on my system.

    I don't know which version to download or from where.

    I would also like to know if I am likely to have any problem in connecting the livedvd to the router via wi-fi

    I have the following product:

    RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI

    Thanks

    Better is to show the ID of the Hardware.
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 net
    If it is one of this ID's, it should work:

    The command does not work on my machine (kubuntu 14.04).

    It is mentioned in the cateee.net page

    Maybe because lspci ist not in the sbin-Directory?

    Try:
    Code:
    sudo lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 net

    That should work, supported by Kernel 3.17 and higher.
