2 Wireless interfaces...? How to get rid of one.


Hello everyone, I'm new to the forums and am hoping to find some help.

I'm running Suse 9.2 on my VAIO Laptop. It has built in wireless.

I've run the wireless on my laptop through Suse previously and it's worked fine. Recently I did a reinstall of the OS and I noticed that there are now 2 wireless card interfaces keeping me from getting online with wireless:

wifi0 and wlan0

wlan0 is the correct interface to my wireless because the MAC address is correct. wifi0 has the same MAC address with a bunch of 00's after it so I know it's a ghost interface or something.

How can I get rid of wifi0 permanently? I've already tried reinstalling the OS (I know, lame) as well as reinstalling the wireless card through Yast.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

This happened to me too. Try deleting the "offending" card in Yast. Make sure to save your settings so that they're written to the hard drive.

There are only 2 cards in Yast, my wired ethernet built in card and my built in wireless card. There aren't any extra ones.
