Thumbs up

To dieter v,
quote " Re: How to configure wireless network?
Here's a direct link to the file you need. http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...7.1.noarch.rpm
The problem with installing it directly is that it won't update automatically. It's better to add the repository and then add the package through yast.

Here's the wireless repo, as they gave it to you before.
Index of /repositories/driver:/wireless/11.3-update "Unquote. Source : http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...network-2.html

Kindly read the entire thread in the link i have searched and posted for you!. In another non-Linux forum where i "was" a member, the responses were not as "cultured" as here and i was told once to "GII"! That was Google It I....!Hope you enjoy the novel and Novell experience and best wishes! Kindly let us all know whether your prob. is "solved" or not.
regards,
vyver.

When you post in a thread, your post gets attached to the end, and everyone in the world with an internet connection can see it right away!

That's basically it!
