Opensuse 11.0+ rt61

Good evenning.

I’m a newbee in Opensuse. I’ve used Mandriva and Ubuntu, and I want tochhange to Opensuse, but vave find a big problem: My wireless card.

I’ve a Levelone wnc-0301 (CHIPSET RT61). I’ve intaled Opensuse 11.0, download rt61-cvs-daily from serialmonkey, and installed. The steps was as follows:
cd /usr/src/linux
make mrproper
make cloneconfig
make module_prepare

then, cd to the rt61 driver directory and:

make install

Compilation wsa with no errors, so:

modprobe -r rt61pci
modprobe rt61

In Yast, configured for open WEP with the key.

rcnetwork restart.

Here begin the bad stuff: DHCP says “no ip address yet…backgrounding”

I checked my configuration:

dmesg | grep -i rt61—>

I’ve checked this card in XP, Mandriva and Ubuntu, and it works right (with and without WEP). Password of the wep is right.

I think that problem is that opensuse don’t get a IP address, but I’ve a good signal of the router (82/100).

Could somebody help me? I’ve installed opensuse about 30 times. I’ve checked with ndiswrapper, drivers for ralink web site. I don’t know what can I do. I like opensuse ( I use it on my work), but have spent three weeks trying configurations, without success. I’ve burned my eyes in forums, google, an nothing.

I apologize by my bad english.

do you know what is wrong?

best regards
