Hi, I’ve just installed openSUSE v11.1 on two different laptops and have managed to get wireless working on one of them, but not the other. They both have the same wireless card - Intel 3945ABG. I’m new to openSUSE and have searched the forums and followed the troubleshooting guide on this forum, but alas i can’t solve the problem and am turning to you guys for help!
The laptop which I can’t enable wireless on is a Fujitsu Amilo, if that info is of any use. The laptop which works picked up the wireless network straight away, while on the other one, I have used KNetworkManager to enter my SSID and set up the connection, however, it does not even try to connect when i click Connect and Save. Under wlan0, I have the message Wireless Disabled.
In the output of dmesg, I have this line:
iwl3945: Radio disabled by HW RF Kill Switch
In the output of iwconfig, I have:
wlan0 IEEE 802.llabg ESSID:""
Mode: Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated

Link Quality:0 Signal Level:0 Noise Level:0

In the output of iwlist scan i get:

If anyone can see what the issue is, i’d be grateful for any help. Thanks in advance[/size]
