tredegar.,YOU ARE THE MAN! You steered me right to where I needed to be!
I started messing with /etc/network/interfaces like you suggested.
[_] instead of [-] and tryed adding Quotation marks to Rodeway Grove.
It didn't work, but then I started thinking that maybe instead of two words, it needs to be one. So instead of Rodeway Grove, it was changed to RodewayGrove and Bada Bing, Bada Boom!

I have my Ubuntu back! I'm replying via Firefox on my Ubuntu Desktop.

It's so crazy how just ONE small thing can cause so much frustration!

Thank You My Friend! And thanks to everyone for your suggestions!

CHEERS!

Here ya go:
Quote:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback


iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

auto eth2
iface eth2 inet dhcp

auto ath0
iface ath0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wireless-essid RodewayGrove
The only thing that worked was bringing the two words Rodeway and Grove together. You gave me that idea when you suggested that I place quotation marks.

Hey!
I have a WUSB11 ver 2.6 and OpenSuse doesn't even detect the device when I plugged it in. How can I make it auto-detect? How can I make this work?

How come everybody says Linux is better if it doesn't even detect a usb wireless device??

Anything would be cool!
Nick

nbourre, welcome to LQ!
randell6564, you have this USB (=nasty, to my mind) modem, and understand it much better than I do, so maybe you can help this person out?
(One good turn deserves another . Thanks).

I don't know that I can be of much help. I Bought 'Suse 9.3' about two years ago and never did get my wireless adapter working with it. Our Adapter was not even suppose to work so well with Ubuntu because the good folks at Linksys have had no interest in the past in supporting Linux. In fact they do everything short of hanging up on you if you even mention Linux to support!

But anyway, since I am not familiar with 'opensuse' the first thing that I would do is talk to the folks at Novell. Then I would consider Ndiswrapper. How exactly to install it is beyond my knowledge as I have never had to use it. There is also plenty of folks here at LQ that are far more knowledgable than I and would be happy to attempt to get you up and running!

One more thing.,is there such a thing as /etc/network/interfaces file on Suse? Are you SURE that it is not detected? Because in my experiences with various Linux OS's, a window will not pop-up telling you that a new piece of hardware has been detected. It might just need to be configured so don't give up yet! post your problem in the 'Suse/Novell' forum. There you will find others who are familiar with your OS. Sorry that I can not be of more help my friend!

OK, here's something.

You're misplacing your discontent. It has nothing to do with Linux being better/worse than windows(which by the way, is a no brainer), it has to do with Hardware manufacturers refusing to release drivers for Linux. Do you plug hardware you know is Windows only, into a Mac, and get irritated at Apple when it doesn't work?

Same scenario.
