SUSE 10.0 wlan Problem with Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG


###########################################

release: suse10.0
hardware: Ibm ThinkpadR52/Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG

###########################################

Hello,

Problem: wlan adapter wont get the DHCP Adress, i guess > Driver-Encryption not working right.

Linux 10.0 has connect to the router and the system detects the Infrastructure and tells signal, ssid, etc. but wont get any IP Adress from the dhcp router.

When i use the same configuration with the phisical Lan Adapter,
everything works fine, DHCP Adress is received emediately when pluged the cable.

I think the Problem might be the Encryption but why !!!

prev. release used: suse9.3 (everything working fine with Intel
PRO/Wireless 2915ABG, so there is no Hardware Problem)


###########################################

Here some detailed Information about the 10.0 configuration:


52Thinkpad:~ # iwconfig eth1 essid giganet key open s:blablabla retry 100

R52Thinkpad:~ # iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

eth1 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"giganet"

Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:713 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:6

sit0 no wireless extensions.


###########################################

I dont like to disable the Wep128 Encryption becouse there could no Problem whithin the hardware, Windows XP works fine within. Also the previous Installtion of Suse 9.3 works with the ndiswanwrapper !

I bought this release again in hope Novell have solved the wlandriver missery.

But after hours of testing and trying every possability i know i guess it wont works like Novell promissed!

Hopefully awaiting your Answers.

Nice regards,
Dominic Vollmer
