I am having wireless connection problems in OpenSuse 11.0. I’ll try to follow the details of the problem as posted in the “Welcome” sticky on this page.
Wireless Device - Intel PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN Network Connection.
Kernel driver - iwl4965
Error message - when running iwlist scan I get "wlan0 Interface doesn’t support scanning : Network is down.
Steps I have taken - I have tried changing my Network Setup Method to “Traditional Method with ifup”, I have fiddled with my wireless switch just to make sure it isn’t the obvious answer, I also tried entering the ESSID Network Name that I got when I ran iwconfig. Somewhat confusingly the ESSID name is “bob” (my name is not bob). I don’t know if this is significant in anyway.
Guide I have followed - I have tried to follow the “My wireless doesn’t work - a primer on what I should do next”
OpenSUSE version 11.0
results of /sbin/lspci -v:
