I’m a bit noob in linux and I installed OpenSUSE 11.0 stable to laptop and when running first time internet doesn’t work. Laptop is now connected to the router with usb but it has also integrated wlan (and wlan used to be main connection).
I have tried to look for connection settings in yast and reconfigured something with no luck. What to try next?
The bottom line is not that can not get to the internet. That is the end result you try to achieve. The bottom line is that you can not get your wlan working. For that sort of problems we have a forum called “Wireless”.
I strongly advise you to go there, because people with knowledge about wireless lan are looking there and not here. I also advise you to tell more in your new thread about your wifi card (make and type), and what you did to get it working, etc., because they are not clairvoyant and the simple statement “it does not work” is not enough info.
Sorry about that too. Actually I don’t even know the specs of that laptop (it’s not actually mine, I’m building the os for my fiancée). Wait a bit, I’ll check — okay, it’s Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter.
Could some administrator or moderator move this to that specific wireless area?
I’m afraid I didn’t understand much of that and I can’t install any modules or wlan-drivers or anything without internet-connection. So what should I do with that laptop? meanwhile I have to use windows on it.

First of all, tell us what hardware you have. You gave us nothing to
help you. You will be able to get that information by opening a
terminal and typing the command ‘lspci -v’. Alternatively, you can get
the information from the Windows device manager.
