Hey guys, I just installed Suse 9.3 Professional today in the hopes of upgrading quite a few bugs on my mobile, boy is it great. I do have one problem. When I setup the pc, I opened YAST, went to the network setup for my wifi card. And in the fields it had the following options.
(X) - Update name via DHCP
Nameserver Search : site
(X) - Update name server via DHCP
I'm pulling these from memory since I am running a dual boot.
When I have these options, and it finds a network connection it adds the IP address/Or Something of the domain I'm connected to, and asks me to log in.....
When I change anything in these fields my wifi card basically dies, and if I run iwconfig it has no ESSID and the nickname changes to "Hermes I"
I'm guessing, but is there a way like in windows, for the machine to be on a "Workgroup" or even not necessarily a workgroup, but independant of a domain, and still connect to my campus's Wifi Network.
