I hope someone can solve my problems and tell me what the problems actually. My laptop is Toshiba Satellite M30 S731. I just changed my distro from Mandriva 2006 to Suse 10.1. I just want to try Suse and I think I like it because Suse 10.1 is excellent, can detect my graphic card, fnfx, and the power management for the centrino processeor is very well but not for my centrino wireless.
I am trying to connect my router (SpeedTouch Alcatel 500 series)which has an encryption key. It does detect my network and ask for WEP passphrase, after I input the passphrase, the Activation KNetworkManager stuck when in "Activation stage: IP configuration started". As a result, failed to connect.
In the console, I typed some commands and found these messages:
ieee80211_crypt_wep: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.
ieee80211_crypt: reieee80211_crypt_wep: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.

My hardware and modules:

Any ideas please..I want to feel wireless from Suse 10.1
Any help and ideas is much appreciates..please !!!
