Go with dynamic address. (Most home routers have a DHCP server configured.)
I selected dynamic address, then scanned my network and i found it, then i put the key and pressed ok. still no connection. I rebooted and still no connection. I tried with No IP and nothing. Sorry guys for asking all the time but it is so complicated. I expected something like, 1.scan for networks-2.input the password-3.connected.
Share your configuration file (/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0)
sudo cat /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0
*I just want to see if the connection is set to start at boot etc?
Did you try adding the entry
as I mentioned in post #19? If not give that a go and reboot.
It is normally not this complicated, it just comes down to the device and driver concerned. It might be easier to try another wifi dongle perhaps.
Some recommended devices…
Will this work with OPENSUSE?
There’s the config file, if it helps:
BOOTPROTO='dhcp' BROADCAST='' DHCLIENT_SET_DEFAULT_ROUTE='yes' ETHTOOL_OPTIONS='' IPADDR='' MTU='' NAME='RTL8188SU 802.11n WLAN Adapter' NETMASK='' NETWORK='' REMOTE_IPADDR='' STARTMODE='hotplug' WIRELESS_AP='' WIRELESS_AP_SCANMODE='1' WIRELESS_AUTH_MODE='open' WIRELESS_BITRATE='auto' WIRELESS_CA_CERT='' WIRELESS_CHANNEL='' WIRELESS_CLIENT_CERT='' WIRELESS_CLIENT_KEY='' WIRELESS_CLIENT_KEY_PASSWORD='' WIRELESS_DEFAULT_KEY='0' WIRELESS_EAP_AUTH='' WIRELESS_EAP_MODE='' WIRELESS_ESSID='**********' WIRELESS_FREQUENCY='' WIRELESS_KEY='' WIRELESS_KEY_0='h:**********' WIRELESS_KEY_1='' WIRELESS_KEY_2='' WIRELESS_KEY_3='' WIRELESS_KEY_LENGTH='128' WIRELESS_MODE='Managed' WIRELESS_NICK='' WIRELESS_NWID='' WIRELESS_PEAP_VERSION='' WIRELESS_POWER='no' WIRELESS_WPA_ANONID='' WIRELESS_WPA_IDENTITY='' WIRELESS_WPA_PASSWORD='' WIRELESS_WPA_PSK='' WIRELESS_WPA_DRIVER='wext'
It really depends on the exact chipset details (which weren’t published on the page you linked to). Having said that, from a quick search this device appears to be supported by the r8188eu kernel driver, so you should be ok.
That looks as expected. So wpa_supplicant not able to communicate with it even with the ‘wext’ backend set explicitly. Not worth pursuing further IMHO.
Ok, so i guess i buy a newer wifi dongle then. Thank u very much all u guys for the help!!!
