Location of conf file for WiFi please.


I have an install at another location that worked perfectly for a year.

The occupant changed BB supplier.

I went and changed the WiFi details via YAST, downloaded 261 updates. Rebooted several times. All was well.

Now it’s reported as no network available.

So I would like to check / edit the conf file like I would on a raspberry pi, but cant find /identify it.

My plan would be to check the wifi with my phone, then the USB dongle, then YAST again. Then manual intervention of the conf file.

It is opensuse 13.2 running a lite desktop on an old Dell that has no wifi card but a zyxel plug in usb wifi with drivers etc.

auto wlan
allow_hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static
wireless power off
wpa_passphrase MyPaSSword
wpa_ssid BThomehub286

So pointers please.

I am not sure what you mean with “conf file for WIFI”, but the configurations for network devices are in /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-*, where * is the name of the device (e.g. wlan0).


If you’re using NetworkManager which I would assume you do because you mention about phones, try the directory


The system-connection directory inside it would be my first guess, Good luck…


Thanks for the attempts at understanding my request.

Visited today and it all works, so no drama or need for anything to be done.

Left it running for enduser to view and use.
