Toshiba Tecra 8000, SuSE 8.2, Linksys WPC11 v.3, and SMC Wireless Router issues ( post #1)
Decide I has better start a new thread because I've already tried everything I have tracked down on this and other forums, so here goes.
I am currently dual booting a Toshibe Tecra 8000 laptop with XP and SuSE 8.2 installed. Everything installed fine except (you guessed it ) the wireless network card. This is the second card as the first, a D-Link DWL-650+, is proven not to work with Linux (Texas Instrument Chip). So I purchased, a hard to find, Linksys WPC11 v.3 and have not been able to get it to work. I have tried modifying files as other within this forum have to no avail, so any help would be appreciated:
SMC 2404WBR router with WEP disabled currently, auto speed, static ip addresses (I use mac filtering).
Linksys WPC11 v.3 FCC ID PKW-WPC11-V31
(I have no problems with this setup under XP)
