This issue is driving BANANAS!! I am about to jump out the window, (unfortunately I live on the ground floor and it won’t make a difference!!)
I am having a connection issue with OpenSuse 11.1 KDE i64.
It connects great at home, it sees and connects to my Apple Airport and even the neighbor’s Netgear open base. HOWEVER! No matter what I install (Fedora, Kubuntu, Open SUSE, Saboyan, and whatever it will NOT connect to outside WiFi networks Like AT&T, at Starbucks, McDonalds or at any hotel or public WiFi AS LONG AS I RUN A 64 BIT VERSION.
When I install the 32 bit version we have connection, with BOTH Network Manager or Wicd.
Install a 64 bit version and we are dead in the water. (NO CONNECTION!) Can’t get IP address even after it sees the connections!!
Obviously it has to be some type of driver issue for the Intel chipset??.
(Wicd it tells me: “failed to get IP Address”)
I have been a SuSE Linux user since version 7, I want to stick with it, its GREAT! But this issue has be trying other distros, now I have to carry a MacBook and I have developed an inferiority complex.
Please help. What can I do?
I recently installed the Wicd version (126.96.36.199) at the Open Suse Linux Build site.
I was running version 188.8.131.52 before and had the same results.
