Any valuable suggestions

Have you associated the device with the router ? did you set it up via YaST ? are you using the correct driver ? Encryption set correctly ?


You have not told your card to associate with any ESSID.

iwconfig wlan0 K-Hostel

If you are doing all of this manually, you may have to get an IP address as well.

You can check if your interface has an IP address by running


If not, you should run

dhcpcd wlan0
