Can't Connect To Access Point On SuSe 9.2 Personal With Intel Centrino 2200BG


ok so I have installed the ipw-firmware package and I have installed and configured my centrino wifi using YaST, how do I browse and connect to wireless networks??? I have looked around and can't find anything. also is there a way to disable the tapping on my laptop mouse pad it is way too sensitive and is doing my head in when I keep randomly clicking everywhere I would much rather just use the buttons

I have a HP Compaq (they never know which to call themselves) nx7010, Centrino 2200BG, SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad Driver (According To /proc/bus/input/devices)

How exactly did you install the firmware? Does your router use WEP? Did you include your router's gateway IP in the YaST wireless settings? Is your wired connection still enabled when trying to use your wifi card? Have you set it up using DHCP?

I installed the firmware using YaST (what does that stand for anyway?)
My router usually uses WEP but I have turned it off in an attempt to make things easier.
I haven't yet included my routers IP in the YaST configuration... see below
I have tried using the wireless with and without the ethernet.
I have not given YaST a static IP.

I was hoping that SuSE included some sort of wireless browser very similiar to what you get with windows XP. The reason for this is that I travel alot and need to "borrow" peoples wireless. So I need a quick and easy way to find and connect to networks.

OK so I have now managed to connect to my access point by giving YaST my routers MAC address (am I not the only wireless person in my area). But I still need to be able to browse in a similiar wat to XP

YaST = Yet another Setup Tool

OK, it looks like you replied before I could, so what you want is "iwlist", which scans for surrounding connections. Type:

# man iwlist

to see all the wifi goodness this little program can get you. Here's the rest of the stuff I wrote:

Installing the firmware via YaST is the way to go. I tried to setup my Intel Pro 2100 card using the native driver and firmware from sourceforge (http://ipw2100.sourceforge.net/), but no luck there. There's also a link for the 2200 on that page as well. Make sure you turn off your wired connection before trying wireless. You can do this as root via the command line, by:

# ifdown "name of wired device"

where "name of wired device" is eth0, eth1, or something (without the quotes). You can see what the device name is by typing:

# ifconfig

I have read when both the wireless and wired devices are setup to use DHCP, they fight over which one talks to the router. In order to connect to your router you will need to enter the router's IP address in the "gateway". At the bottom of the YaST wireless setup page, there's advanced options for you to enter your gateway IP. You could also use "iwlist".

# iwlist

This is the scanning command that finds surrounding wifi connections. Did you also enter your ESSID name into the configuration settings? After disabling your wired device, at the command line type:

# iwconfig

Please post the output. Now type:

# ifup "name of wireless device"

where "name of wireless device" is eth0, eth1, wlan or something (without the quotes). Post this output as well. If all else fails, here's a good wifi how-to page (http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/l...mp11-linux.htm). I hope this helps.

I'm glad I could help. Wow, that looks ugly. It seems you are having some dependency issues.

configure: WARNING: Could not find glib-config in /sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:/root/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin. glib is required to link to wiretap.
configure: WARNING: *** Wiretap support disabled. While Kismet will function without wiretap, it will limit the log reading and writing abilities. ***

checking for capable lex... insufficient
configure: error: Your operating system's lex is insufficient to compile
libpcap. flex is a lex replacement that has many advantages, including
being able to compile libpcap. For more information, see
http://www.gnu.org/software/flex/flex.html .
configure: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for libpcap-0.8.3

I have never used kismet before, so the only thing I can think of is to install apt and synaptic to help resolve dependency issues. Here is a link that will allow you to install apt and synaptic for Suse (http://linux01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm/home.html). Apt and synaptic are very similar to yum (or urpmi)...apt is the command-line version, synaptic is the gui. It takes a bit to set up, but once it's installed it's quite nice. After adding the appropriate repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

rpm ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt SuSE/9.2-i386 base update mozilla packman packman-i686
rpm-src ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt SuSE/9.2-i386 base update mozilla packman packman-i686

just do:

# apt-get update
# apt-get install kismet

As for your Samba issue, it sounds like you don't have your local workgroup name entered in your /etc/samba/smb.conf file. See:

http://www.samba.netfirms.com/index.htm
http://home.nyc.rr.com/computertaijutsu/samba.html
http://compnetworking.about.com/libr...y/aa062499.htm

If you want your Windows boxes to see your Linux box (samba server), then you will need to open up ports 139/tcp and udp/137/138 on your Linux box. You can do this in the YaST "security/firewall" section I believe. Also consider any software firewalls running on your Windows boxes (Microsoft or 3rd party).

I disabled my LINUX firewall shortly before reading this post which fixed my intermittent wifi connection problems and samba problem. I do not use firewalls on any of my machines since there is no need because my router acts as a firewall (much better than most software firewalls in my opinion). I am going to try apt and synaptic in a now




P.S. LMFAO Just Read Your Sig. I Love It!!!

Apt cannot find kismet because it is located in the "base" repository. Make your /etc/apt/sources.list look something like this:

rpm ftp://mirrors.mathematik.uni-bielefeld.de/pub/suse/apt SuSE/9.2-i386 base update security mozilla packman packman-i686
rpm-src ftp://mirrors.mathematik.uni-bielefeld.de/pub/suse/apt SuSE/9.2-i386 base update security mozilla packman packman-i686

From what I can tell, you only included "update" and "security". The "base update security mozilla packman packman-i686" stuff after the ftp site name are the list of repositories containing packages. After adding the other repositories into the sources file, you will need to run:

# apt-get update

again to refresh the package list. If you like, slap "ftp://mirrors.mathematik.uni-bielefeld.de/pub/suse/apt/SuSE/9.2-i386" into your browser address bar and poke around in the other repository directories to see if there's anything else you would want. I don't recommend updating major OS packages, like the kernel, Gnome, KDE, etc. using apt or synaptic, but you could if you want something custom-made. I only use apt and synaptic for 3rd party stuff like, xine, libdvdcss (to play DVDs), mplayer, mplayerplug-in, etc (in the 2 packman repos). You should be good to go!


P.S. Steven Wright is funny as hell.

OK I will give all that a try when I have time, you said then I should be good to go well as steven wright would say "If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something."
