Multiboot PC with Windows 7, openSUSE12.2 and other Linux distros. Wireless adapter is Trendnet TEW-642PI, firmware rt2800pci.
Yesterday I made the following changes to the AP so that our guests can access the network:
Wireless mode: from N only to Mixed N&G
Wireless channel width: from 40 MHz to 20 MHz
This morning on boot up Network Manager shows no WLAN connection and SSID scan shows no SSIDs available. I went to YAST > Network Settings to make changes, e.g. delete & recreate, etc. but still no go. Booting into other Linux distros show same wireless problems. Booting into Windows show normal wireless connection and I am able to get to the Internet.
As a trial, I plug in a TP-Link usb wireless adapter (firmware rt2800usb) then I was able to get to the Net after setting up via YAST > Network Settings > ifconfig. I am typing this in openSUSE as the connection to the forum is available with the usb wireless adapter.
Any suggestions to help me re-enable wireless connection with the Trendnet adapter?
Thanks a lot for your help.
