I installed openSUSE KDE and can’t get my Netgear WG511T working.
In ControlCenter/NetworkSettings if have the following:
Name is AR5212/AR5213 Mulitprotocol MAC/baseband processor (No hwinfo)
Device name: wlan0
Started automatically on cable connection
Ip address assigned using DHCP
When I click on Edit, the Hardware tab shows that the ath5k module is used for this device.
With the card inserted in the PCMCIA slot, one of the green light stays constantly lit, and the other green light does not come on at all.
Interestingly, if I exit openSUSE and boot to my Freespire installation, the card works fine. Freespire set this up first try without any problems.
I’m a real novice at this stuff, so any help someone gives me will have to be really basic, step by step stuff. If you tell me to log on as root or to recompile a package, I will be totally lost! Sorry.
