I have successfully installed my Belkin Wirless G adapter FD… in Kubuntu in the past using ndiswrapper.
What would be the procedure to download Ndiswrapper (or equivelant application) in OpenSUSE?
Which ndiswrapper should I download from “Package Selection”? (ndiswrapper-kmp-pae or ndiswrapper-kmp-xen). Does OpenSUSE use a frond-end (graphical install thingy) like Kubtunu?
I downloaded the 2nd option for ndiswrapper, and did the following commands in a “gnome terminal”
kyle@linux-cozi:~> su command
su: user command does not exist
linux-cozi:/home/kyle # ndiswrapper -i /home/Desktop/BLKWGU.inf
couldn’t open /home/Desktop/BLKWGU.inf: No such file or directory at /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper line 219.
linux-cozi:/home/kyle # cd Desktop
linux-cozi:/home/kyle/Desktop # ndiswrapper -i BLKWGU.inf
installing blkwgu …
linux-cozi:/home/kyle/Desktop # ndiswrapper -l
blkwgu : driver installed
linux-cozi:/home/kyle/Desktop # modprobe ndiswrapper
linux-cozi:/home/kyle/Desktop # rcnetwork restart

On the ‘panel’ I click on ‘Network Connections’, then ‘Wireless’.
What do I type here?
My router’s name is MMbelkin54g, and it has wpa security, and its ip changes when I turn it off/on.

You need to make a new connection for wlan0. As long as your router
does DHCP and NAT (it probably does), it doesn’t matter what its IP
is. Although the “Connect and Save” button will be active from the
first screen on, keep pushing Next until it becomes inactive before
connecting. That is a bug in KNM.
