No Internet connection...


Hi,
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:

Code:
ndiswrapper -i AIRPLUS.SYS
modprobe ndiswrapper
Now I had "wlan1" in the "iwconfig" list. So it gave it an essid and a WEP-Key:

Code:
iwconfig wlan1 essid "XXXX" key "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XX" channel 10 mode managed
So, everything ok till yet. iwconfig says now this:


Code:
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  
          RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XX   Security mode:restricted
          Power Management:off
          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?

Thank you!

Your firewall starts on boot, right?

You mean the linux firewall? Hm... I don't think so?
Do you think this is blocking something?

Quite possibly, what ports do you have open on it?

Cheers

It wasn't the firewall. It was deactivated.

I only had to type "iwconfig wlan1 key on", and then it worked... ???
Thanks for your help anyway.

Happy New Year
