Ive been trying to configure my 2nd wireless adapter with no success.
First ill give you the jist of everything and we go from there.
Im running suse 10 OSS 5cd version thinger
Wireless 1: (currently works fine)
DLINK PCI card, configured to my router and running the net fine, no probs.
Driver installed with ndiswrapper.
Wireless 2: (this one trying to fix!)
Netgear WG111 USB adapter, I have installed ndiswrapper for it, and hardware info shows it as netgear wg111.
Trying to get it to connect to my brothers router primarily for file sharing and home networking.
When the driver was first installed for the netgear usb device, the adapter sprung to life and the light started to work. When in YaST > Network Devices > Network Cards , configuring a new device doesnt show my adapter, so i tried every setting from every driver for a wirless pci card, pcmcia, usb device etc etc, with no luck in getting it to work.
After rebooting, the light on the netgear usb device fails to turn on which obviously means no communication.
Is it possible to run 2 wirless devices off the 1 system? If so how can i fix this?
Also bear in mind, my router and my brothers both use a ip of 192.168.0.1, my working dlink card connects me to the router as 192.168.0.4, would my netgear card have a problem with assigning a ip address from dhcp because of this?
I wish for my router (dlink card) to be the primary card to run the internet and the netgear one primarily as i said just for home networking.
The dlink card also picks up my brothers router but i do not connect to it, is it also possible to have the 1 device connect to 2 networks?
Any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated.
