I’ve reviewed all the sticky notes as well as reviewed many of the threads. I’ll try to provide as much info as possible. I have a Broadcom BCM43228 802.11 a/b/g/n built in Wireless adapter. I did have to connect wired in order to download from packman the Broadcom drivers. At one point last night, it did connect wirelessly, but now it’s not.
Under YaST > Network Devices > Network Settings > Global Options, the only option I have for Network Setup Method is Wicked Service. Last night, I had to edit the card’s settings, under the General tab, select At Boot Time for Activate Device, and enable DHCP. I click next, and for Operating Mode, I have Managed, select my Network Name (from Scan Network), and set the Authentication Mode (also entering the Encryption Key). That process seems odd to me as I’m used to an interface where I can select the scanned network and it would detect the Authentication Mode and allow me to connect after entering the password.
I run sudo ifconfig, and there is an entry for wlp2s0, but no IP (obviously). I run sudo iwlist scan, and my wireless network does appear.
What else is necessary for someone to assist me? Also, is there an interface like I describe above that will show the available wireless networks and allow me to select the one to which I want to connect?
I need to apologize. I did not see the Network Manager option. I did switch to that, and that worked until updates came down, and I needed to reboot. Now, the wireless card is greyed out, and the network manager icon has a red X.
The confusion is you have both
Typically you would install just kernel-desktop
Your post information has all the hallmarks of a user unfamiliar with openSUSE and probably Linux in general
The situation of having both installed usually comes about (in my experience) when users use OneClick installers
Your grub menu will reflect your scenario of having both default and desktop
If it were me, I’d uninstall default, but it can be a challenge
One of my (many) problems with Wi-Fi was that on the new Plasma-nm widget (0.9) I didn’t realize that one must check the box in the upper left corner (with the WiFi symbol to the right) to turn on the WiFi radio. This check box didn’t exist in earlier versions. If not checked, there is no Wi-Fi.
