You can put it in /etc/init.d/boot.local, but you will probably need a delay as
the network may not be started when that file is executed.
I would create a file /root/set_speed with the contents
and it appears to be working fine. The network manager signal bars on the panel below don’t match the actual signal connection strength I think I’m getting. Only one bar is lit. In WindowsXP the Netgear Network Manger icon shows most of the bars lit with a 86% signal strength.
I also noticed that the Netgear WG111v2 is running considerably warmer when I use it in openSuSE. The tx / rx light don’t work on the Netgear dongle when I’m in openSuSE too.
My question is what file do I edit to put the command
"/usr/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M fixed"
so that this will load my netgear wg111v2 at 54M fixed every time I boot up openSuSE?
