To Whom It May Concern:
I am trying to use a D-Link wireless PCI card (model: DWA-552) with SuSE 10.3; however, I cannot get the card to connect to the internet.
I tried using MadWiFi drivers first–installing them via YaST–but I couldn’t get the card to work. I uninstalled MadWiFi using YaST.
Next I tried using ndiswrapper, following the instructions at
Ndiswrapper - openSUSE
After completing the instructions I started Firefox, but the browser could not connect. It appears as if I’m able to connect to the access point but not to the internet.
The card works under Windows XP (I dual boot.)
YaST=>Hardware=>Hardware Information=>Wireless LAN=>AR5416 802.11 a/b/g/n Wireless PCI Adapter (wlan0)=>Kernal Driver: ndiswrapper
“lspci -v” outputs
02:0a.0 Network Controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5416 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless PCI Adapter (rev 01)
Subsystem: D-Link System Inc Unknown device 3a6d
Flags: bus master, fast Back2Back, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 128, IRQ 22
Memory at feae0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64]
Capabilities:  #80 
“lspci -n” lists “02:0a.0 Class 0280: 168c:0023 (rev 01)”
“dmesg | grep firmware” only outputs an error message about intel_rng (nothing about my wireless card)
“iwlist scan” outputs present wireless networks
I turned of encryption and turned on SSID broadcasting to make connecting easier.
“iwconfig” lists the ESSID and MAC address of my access point (plus other info.)
“ifconfig” lists my IP as 192.168.1.103, which makes sense
I pinged my access point with “ping -c 5 192.168.1.1”. Pings were successful.
I pinged an external address using “ping -c 5 188.8.131.52”. This fails with “connnect: Network is unreachable”
Does anyone have any ideas to get my card working?
Thanks in advance,
