I am having a problem getting a wireless LAN card to work in SuSE Linux 9.0. This is the first time I have tried to get a wireless lan card working in any linux version. Anyway, I have the card working to the point that I can reach the access point. I know this because I can open up a browser, direct it to the access point web configuration page and configure away. Of course I can ping the access point too. But, I cannot reach beyond the router. Pining anything outside, like my ISPs DNS server, gives me "not accessable".
I am using DHCP, from the access point, to configure both my wired lan and wireless lan connections. When I have both connections active the response to "route -nNvee" is:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface MSS Window irtt
192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 wlan0 0 0 0
192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0 0 0 0
0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0 0 0 0
When I have only the wireless card active I get the first route line only. So, it looks like for some reason the routing does not get fully set up for the wireless lan. And the obvious question is - why not, and how can I get the route to be set up correctly? Anybody got any ideas?
