Suse 9.0 Pro Linksys WPC11 ver. 3 resolved

Been trying resolve the issue of my WLAN working on this setup. It seemed pretty straight forward, kind of like plug n play if you will.

Turns out that the problem was that I had my onboard ethernet plugged into my router. It doesn't matter if eth0 was up or down it just wasn't working. So this evening, I decided to unplug the onboard ethernet and give the wireless another shot.....and it worked.

I'm not sure if this is an issue with Suse 9.0 Pro, all of Suse or all of Linux. Just thought that I would share this in case anyone else is having this problem or if anyone comes across this problem in the future.

Enjoy, Kenny

I hade SuSe 8.2 and had my Linksys wireless card working great using wlan0, however I got the upgrade to 9.0 for xmas and after the upgrade....DENIED! I'm racking my brain as how to fix it but no dice. After the upgrade, 9.0 actually recognized the card but all the configuring in the world hasn't helped me. Any advice would be appreciated.
