SUSE Linux + Orinoco wifi
Posted on 2004-08-16
I have a problem with my laptop - i have orinoco silver 11b PCMCIA card, Compaq Evo N1015v with Win XP Pro and Suse Linux 9.0 (i'm almost sure it was 9.0)
And the problem is with the wifi.
I configured everything correctly in Yast, KWifiManager shows that i have the signal but DHCP can't get the IP - if i manually configure the IP, it usually shows also "IP unavailable" and also changes the Access Point (Managed) to Ad-Hoc.
I have Linksys D-514 AP with no encryption (sits at home).
I have no problems in Win XP, DHCP gives the IP and everything works just fine.
Sorry, i'm really new to linux, only command line things i know are ls and ping :) And pinging the AP gives me Destination unreachable (i think) or something similar. I'm not sure about the drivers, i'm using everything that came with the linux installation.
Help me to get the thing working and you'll get the points + one linux user.
