I had a wireless connection to open suse from last year. I then had a problem with my Netgear 824 router.
I have reconnected to windows vista. Now I have to get opensuse working on wireless.
I do not have much experience in opensuse
I have read the forums and the sticky and also from wicd forums.
I have checked the yast settings and it is for AR242x ath0 and Wired L2 100 eth0.
Opensuse version 11 ,2.6.25-1.1 default
Laptop ASus F5RL
I have done the following:-
ip link set ath0 up iwlist ath0 scan iwconfig
iwconfig shows essid and access point
Wired connection via wicd is oK
**Now I can see wicd connecting to my essid at 85% but cannot get to the internet. **
Wicd has WPA-PSK and encryption password . Uses wext.
Pinging to any external site not possible.
What is wrong with this?
