Hey, I'm really new to Linux, so sorry if I do or say something dumb .
That aside, is it possible I could get help connecting to my wireless network? I use openSuSE 10.2 and have a Linksys WUSB11 ver 2.6 wireless adapter. A friend tried to help me, and he guided me through the process of trying to use ndiswrapper and got me more familiar with the command line in general, but he recommended that I come here as the solution seemed to be over his head. So, any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for the link; unfortunately, I worked through the guide and I still have no connection. Any tips? Notes about my process: I went to the ndiswrapper wiki to find its links for drivers for my device, and I could only find a WUSB11v2.5, whereas mine is a 2.6. I went ahead and used the 2.5 - could that be my issue?
EDIT: Also, no "device present" is appearing next to the driver in ndiswrapper -l.
I went to the Linksys site and got the driver for my device and installed it, and now it says both driver installed and "device (077B:2219) present (alternate driver: at76_usb)." However, I still have no connection What should I try now?
I uninstalled and reinstalled ndiswrapper and the driver, and it's all exactly the same It seems really weird that wlan0 has disappeared - it was there when I first tried with my friend to fix it. I think something must have happened when I added network cards in YaST according to the guide. The thing is, whenever I connect my device, Linksys WLAN controller pops up in YaST network cards, but even though I configure it I still have no connection.
So.... what should I do now?
