Unhappy belkin wireless network card in suse 9.2


hello all,

right straight to it............ I used to use mandake and when i installed it it was no problem to set up my wireless network card(belkin) on my Toshiba A40 laptop.

I wanted to actually purchase a linux distro so i bought suse 9.2. I have set up everything, inlcuding my broadband, i have a router/modem (belkin)

The problem is when i need to use my wireless network card in suse 9.2. for the life of me i dont know were to start!

Could anyone help me please

many thanks

Ryan

Open a terminal and post output of:
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig -a
/sbin/iwconfig -a
/sbin/lsmod
Note, you can redirect output to a file:
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig -a > ifconfig.txt

Can you run lspci as well? Also, if iwconfig isn't there, you probably need to install the wireless-tools package.

As a normal user, use "/sbin/lspci" then.
