I am using OpenSUSE 10.2 and set up my D-Link DWL-520+ Networkcard yesterday.
I did this with the Windows Driver and ndiswrapper:
ndiswrapper -i AIRPLUS.SYS
Now I had "wlan1" in the "iwconfig" list. So it gave it an essid and a WEP-Key:
iwconfig wlan1 essid "XXXX" key "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XX" channel 10 mode managed
So, everything ok till yet. iwconfig says now this:
wlan1 IEEE 802.11b ESSID:"XXXXX"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.457 GHz Access Point: 00:01:E3:02:41:46
Bit Rate=11 Mb/s Tx-Power:0 dBm Sensitivity=0/3

Link Quality:100/100 Signal level:-28 dBm Noise level:-256 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
Now I entered "ifconfig wlan1 up" and everything worked perfect. I had connection to the internet and the whole network.
But when I started my Computer today there was no internet connection. I reinstalled the dirver but that was for nothing. Iwconfig looks the same as above, everything should be ok...?
What could be the problem?
