Question Try this again...WiFi don't work...

Was told couldn't post this in two forums at once. Wasn't aware I had done that...sorry. But this problem has been kicking my butt. My last question has been blocked because of that so will try again.

Recently installed SuSE on my Dell laptop. Have an Orinoco Gold 802.11b card, and a D-Link DI-514 AP. Laptop seems to be receiving a signal, it receives the AP's MAC address, yet I cannot ping anything much less the AP, and I can't access the internet at all. Running Windows 2000 on my old desktop, and my ISP is Road Runner through a cable modem. Everything as far as WEP and SSID checks as correct. Drivers loaded apparently correctly. Again, laptop receives correct IP and MAC addresses from AP yet no other communication. Any ideas?

Hopefully I did it right this time....thank you. I really need some help on this one.

This is a duplicate question. This will likely be closed by a Mod.

Go back to your other thread and post the stuff that Beyer42 asked for.
