I had the same trouble with this card on Suse 9.2. I figured out that I had to set the DNS and Routing info even tho I had it set to get that info from dhcp. For me this setting was easy Network Device or DNS and Hostname modules in Yast. Hope this helps. I only found this out because KInternet told me it couldnt find any DNS or routing info.
get ping to the internet directly working first, rather than use DNS as its adds a whole layer of potential problems.
Try 188.8.131.52 which is Demons primary DNS server, its always there.
If this fails you have a routing problem so forget DNS for the second.
If you can ping your internet router which I'm guessing is 192.168.1.1 then probably the problem is that the Wireless software seems to have trouble translating the Default Gateway provided by DHCP to a default route in the routing table. If you do 'route' you'll probably find that 0.0.0.0 is missing.
If so do 'route add default gateway 192.168.1.1' and it should all work.
Ok, I scrapped SuSE 9.3 on my laptop, but.... I just installed it on my mom's laptop, and I can connect to the internet, 184.108.40.206 brings me to google in my browser, and I can ping other sites, but..... I can't use DNS. I'm smart enough to read what you said about DNS, but I have no idea how to configure it. As always any help appreciated.
