Wireless Help

I’m running openSUSE 11.1 with KDE.
The card I’m using is a DWL G650+ AirPlusG+ Cardbus.
I’ve downloaded the firmware (tiacx111c16) and after i run /usr/sbin/iwconfig it gives a result like the one in the sticky.
However when i put sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan it shows:

lo Interface doesn’t support scanning

etho Interface doesn’t support scanning

wlano No scan results

Any advice would be much appreciated.

1 first, please make sure the driver is loaded
2 then please provide the output:
ifconfig -a
BTW: what you mean " it gives a result like the one in the sticky"

Ahh yes so that was what i was forgetting (the driver):shame:
Thank you

Is there an alternative to getting the windows driver and using ndiswrapper?

And by an output like the sticky i meant like the one in the “My wireless doesn’t work - a primer on what I should do next” thread, ie one that showed that the card was working.

Yes, and if you want to use WPA, it’s the only alternative at the moment AFAIK.
