Larry, it does not works for me.
It works only if I connect without protection.
Tried with wep, wpa-personal 1/2.
My wifi router has options : no-protection, wep, wpa-psk( 256 bit ),
wpa-aes ( 256 bit ). Tried with all but the only that works
is without protection.
Tried to reinstall kernel from dvd and again to reinstall
it from oss/repository ( download.opensuse.org )
OpenSuSE version is 11.1, with kernel : 18.104.22.168-9-pae
Wifi card is : Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI
Adapter (rev 01)
I can see correctly the wlan and wifi networks around.
