Ok, so I have a Realtek RTL8187SE wireless card that out of the box will only connect to Open Wireless Networks. I need to know how (and if) I can install NDISwrapper in OpenSuse 11.4 (KDE), anytime I have ever used a KDE distro, it seemed NDISwrapper didn’t work I really want to give OpenSuse a shot, but this is one of the things holding me back. I’m am currently posting from the LiveCD and it’s very nice! Hope I will be able to do a full install!
How do I get it to work? It says on that site compatible but it just sits at the connecting thing, and eventually times out. Unless I connect to a open network…
What type of encryption are you using
The encryption I am using right now is WEP
You must enter the complete hexadecimal key! Use copy and paste!

Did you put in the encryption hex kay and NOT a phrase.
The RTL8187SE works with WEP, WPA and WPA2. Any problems are not in the driver,
but in the configuration.
How would I get it in hexadecimal format? my key is all numbers (ex 1234567890)

If you log into your AP and look at the wireless key, then you can get it.
My dad doesn’t allow me to mess with the router settings I know the key in regular format though.
You can use one of these WEP tools to convert your password to hex:
centricle : ascii-hex converter
That seems to have not fixed it It just sits at Setting Network Address. I feel I have gotten a little closer, but yet still so far away…
I don’t know if this is the case for everybody, but I’ve found wireless is usually a little more finicky on the live cd. Your card is supported. If you install it we can help you to get it working. Right now you’re troubleshooting the live install. I say do the installation, plug into the wired network, and apply all updates. Then unplug and go from there. If you need to get on here for more advice you can always plug in.
