Opensuse 11.4 Wireless takes 3 mins to come up.

As the title states. I have wireless working under 11.4. I currently have 2 issues I have at this time is when I boot my laptop. I get logged all the way in and have to wait on average 2 to 3 mins before wireless connects, and when it does I don’t get my nfs share. The nfs share works properly when I’m hard wired, and once the wireless is up it will show the drive eventually. So I know nfs is configured correctly.

Any sugestions on how to get it to connect before I log in or at least soon after I’m at the desktop. I’m suspecting the NFS will fix itself if wireless gets connected sooner.

Thanks for any assistance.
FYI I havn’t used opensuse in quite a while so may need extra detail on what to do to fix the issue.


Can you provide the result of this command :


Results of iwconfig

eth0 no wireless extensions.

Just so you know. If I boot to the log in screen and wait 5 mins before logging in it works fine.

Thanks agian for any assistance.

Are You using NetworkManager ?
