DLINK DWL-G122 REV B - openSuSE 10.2

I'm trying to configure a DLink-DWL-G122 Rev(B) USB wireless card with a Toshiba Laptop.

I've installed the rt2570-cvs-2007060620 driver and the LED next to Link is on.

When I run iwlist wlan0 scan it shows the following output

wlan0 Scan completed :
Cell 01 - Address: 00:14:BF:F3:40:EA
Frequency:2.437 GHz
Encryption keyff

ifconfig -a shows the following output

wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:95:FB:5C:B6
inet6 addr: fe80::211:95ff:fefb:5cb6/64 Scope:Link
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:28 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:10880 (10.6 Kb)
Base address:0x4000

ifconfig wlan0 up or iwconfig wlan0 essid WLAN commands run smoothly and looks like they are bringing up the wireless card as expected.

Even though it looks like my wireless card is configured correctly, I'm still unable to browse internet.

Any ideas?

You continue with the problem?

You don't have an IP. E.g. ifconfig:

Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:15:E9:F8:FD:83  
inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::215:e9ff:fef8:fd83/64 Scope:Link
RX packets:53692 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:10751 errors:0 dropped:1 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
RX bytes:9166514 (8.7 MiB)  TX bytes:1387410 (1.3 MiB)
Throws iwconfig and something should give you seemed to this:

RT73 WLAN  ESSID:"MySSID"  Nickname:""
Mode:Managed  Frequency=2.422 GHz  Access Point: 00:18:F3:9A:3D:D9   
Bit Rate=18 Mb/s   
RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
Link Quality=63/100  Signal level:-76 dBm  Noise level:-115 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
You should revise if assign an IP and the DNS charged to be able to surf the net.
