I really hope someone can help me track down the problem, cause I am really close. I have a linksys 54g card configured with ndiswrapper on my compaq armada e500 running suse 9.1 personal. I gave up trying to get this thing to work a few months ago, but picked it up again.
I sucessfully got the card set up and I am able to ping my internal network and ping the internet by IP address. Dhcpcd successfully configures a resolv.conf file that appears to have the correct nameservers. Ifconfig and iwconfig seem to give results that look like everything is set up correctly. I get an ip address under wlan0.
I was also successful in accessing the internet using my Ethernet card, before I started messing with the wireless card. Now, nothing seems to touch the outside except by ip address. I am using qwest dsl with msn.
I tried the route command which works OK when I use route –n, but is very slow when I use route. It seems to not give a gateway address either except “*”s. Traceroute also gives *s when I use this command to go to an ip address on my local network. I am not sure what these two commands are supposed to do when everything works correctly, but I assume it is not working.
