I just installed SUSE 10.1 last night. Admittedly, I am a new Linux user.
I am trying to get the wireless connection configured. It seems to recognize my wireless card. I’ve put in the SSID and WEP Encryption Key. However, it still says no network found.
It seems I am using the YAST network configuration instead of the NetworkManager. Is there a way to change it to NetworkManager. I heard this network configuration is superior because it can automatically detect your wireless network, etc.
Wireless is a fast moving area as drivers are being developed. In your place I would get hold of a 11.0 DVD (from a duplicator, friend, magazine) and install from that. Most of your book will still be relevant with 11.0.
