Im brand new to Linux, and after accidently deleting my Vista Partition, decided to take the plunge and fully dedicate my laptop to Open suse 11. Although I do have a sound knowledge of windows, and can program in several comp languages. "Im rather rusty now thow", My problem is that I have a Acer Aspire 5612ZWLMi Laptop, which in turn has an inbuit wirless Atheros 2413 wirless card, and I have installed Open suse 11.
I also have an in built network card.
I have the inbuilt network card working. but cant get my wireless working. It is detected but seems determined to remain disconnected. I briefly tried using a different version of linux, and this showed surrounding networks available, but I could not connect to them. but this version seems to leave the card dis-connected. Could some kind person explain where ive gone wrong and what i need to do
PS Looks superior to vista, and feels more secure.
