That’s my problem:
I’ve installed the newest Fritz!WLAN USB-driver with ndiswrapper. Then I configured the wlan0 in Yast. So it’s the same procedure like in Suse 11.
But the problem is, that I can’t connect to internet that way.
Iwconfig doesn’t show the wlan0. Ndiswrapper is loaded into the kernel but it is “used by” 0 (checked with lsmod). The USB-stick is plugged in (checked with lsusb)
But… when I try to add the networkcard in YaST/Network Devices/Network Settings and click on “Add” (just like in the wiki is described, like here: Ndiswrapper howto - openSUSE) and I add “ndiswrapper” to the module name, the networkcard doesn’t show up:
kirk:~ # iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
If I go back to the card in YaST, the Module Name entry (where I entered ndiswrapper) is gone :(. Does anyone know how to manually bind /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0 to the driver ¨ndiswrapper"? It should have something to do with udev …
Thanks for the reply! I already blacklisted the zd1211rw driver, and made sure it’s not loaded.
lsmod |grep zd1211rw gives an empty reply. I think it’s a YaST bug, but I am not very sure. Anyone with the same problem who can confirm?
suse 11.1 livebox-5a92 sagem ndiswrapper settings get lost too. when i use the zd1211rw driver it get installed and communicates with the livebox but no connection to internet…eagerly hoping for an answer to that firstname.lastname@example.org
iwconfig give signal strength 57/100
how do i test the network settings and connection?
