What, or how, do I need to do to get this turkey to go online with OpenSUSE 11.0? My Linux is a plain vanilla DVD installation, using all standard defaults for setup, per DVD prompts, etc., but the WLAN card does not recognize the U-Verse wireless router rf signal, period. I have tried every trick in the book, including using the Windows NDIS *.inf driver files that supposedly came on my hardware,I am told, to operate this wireless card on Linux. I cannot get it to work.
This is the first conundrum of this sort that I have tried do deal with in years, but to no avail.My Linux experience goes back to the old pre-1.0 days, and now I must admit defeat.
Any input from the Linux crowd, good, bad, or indifferent will be welcomed.
the 11.0 was released on June of 2008 and is now unsupported
an old release night not work with new hardware and if that wlan uses very new hardware .... att uvers is new so ...
