I got a new laptop (Acer Aspire 5738G), and I installed openSUSE 11.2 without any problems. Now when I try to access the wireless connection, everything works just fine, but for the fact that I can’t get a connection with any computer outside my local network (so for example I am able to reach my modem configuration website, but I’m not able to reach google.com). When the ethernet cable is plugged in, everything works just fine. I also have a dual boot with Windows 7, and there wireless works just fine.
I think I found the problem:
The default rule hasn’t been added to the routing table by the networkmanager. But I don’t know how to fix this. Any clues?
I allready looked into https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=553908 (unchecking ‘Ignore automatically obtained routes’) and setting STARTMODE=‘ifplugd’ for eth0, but nothing seems to work.

If you can update with a wired connection, do so and reboot. It should
be OK. If you cannot update, you need the following commands:
sudo /sbin/route add -net 192.168.X.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 dev wlan0
sudo /sbin/route add default gw 192.168.X.Y
I have assumed that you are using Network Address Translation through
a router and the address of the router is 192.168.X.Y (substitute for
X and Y - both are 1 in my network.). I have also assumed that your
wireless device is wlan0 - change that if necessary.
Did the update and now it works. Thx
