Suse 9.3 Intel Wireless Problem


I just installed Suse 9.3. Wireless card used to work in 9.2, but then wouldn't not get recognized and powered on boot, would have to constantly delete and reinstall the wireless card in Yast before I could get it to work. Seems a lot of people are having this problem, and I have found something that could be a possible solution. In Yast, go to the /etc/sysconfig editor. Then in hardware, go to network and expand wlan. Change startmode from "auto" to "onboot". Try it and let me know.

I have the same problem with a Sony VGNA117S/Intel Pro 2200~B/G, had to set the ethernet to "never" and the wireless to "manual" - upon getting the desktop I have to run KiWiFi, run Yast and configure from there. at every boot At this point my laptop/Suse 9.3 then reconfigures the 2200B/G and finds my network interface as long as I have run "Internet/Administration/Network Selector" from the start menu and clicked on "Wireless-Ethernet 1" from the system tray.................All in alll a setback from 9.2 pro and one which will undoubtedly put off users from switching to Suse 9.3 pro when Windows kicks off wireless breathlessly. This should have been debugged before being paid for by the public. Does this occur with all the lates distros or is it unique to Suse ??...Strange when it worked with the 9.3 eval seamlessly.

My Laptop uses built-in Intell 2200b/g, I've never used the pcmcia card interface, and neither do I own a desktop so I'm afraid I can't help you. You could browse this site main menu at the top r.h. corner and go to Linux HCL and check out what other users have found compatible with their distros, unless some kind soul browsing this page can offer to helo you.

Good Luck, and if you find something that works remember and let the community know.

BTW, I think Suse have posted an update dated May 9 on their D/L site which may help resolve my own problem by extending the boottime for setup of card and some issues with DHCP.
