hello, im unable to do much at all with openSUSE 11.1. im using a Dell Inspiron 1501, with a Broadcom 440x model. basically im Linux STUPID! but i am used to command lines, i used to use backtrack 3, so i know the basic structure of the lines. but my problem is that nothing i can do will get the internet to work. my light almost is never on when i boot linux, occasionally it will come on, but it wont connect or detect anything. it does however, register as wlan0, but nothing else works.
tried it, doesent work. please give me useful info. just because i am linux dumb, doesent mean i dont look at sticked posts. i am not stupid, they are there for a reason, so please dont post redundant info.
There was never any intention to suggest you were stupid, where did I mention that!
Open a terminal and become su and do
lets see what that spews out
nevermind, i fixed it, there is a very very old guide here on the forums, if i find it again, i will post the link for those with the inspirion 1501

I don’t know what you did - please elaborate.
The one thing I did see is that a Broadcom 440X is NOT a wireless
device. They use 44XX for wired devices. Their wireless units are 43XX.
