unpredictable wireless behaviour Suse 10.9 ndiswrapper 1.2
I have kind of managed to get wireless working on Suse 10.9 with ndiswrapper 1.2 with my D-Link DWL-G650 (rev B) card. Here is the ndiswrapper and iwconfig output to prove it :

ndiswrapper: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.
ndiswrapper version 1.2 loaded (preempt=no,smp=no)
ndiswrapper: driver net5211 (D-Link,7/14/2004, loaded


lo no wireless extensions.

sit0 no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"myessid" Nickname:"linux"

The only problem is that my surfing is weird :

- some sites (my supermarket, my bank, work fine
- some sites (, have problems connecting, sometimes not responding or timing out or being VERY slow
- some sites (Google - go figure) not connecting at all.

Does anyone have any ideas of where to look?

Actually, have just noticed it only happens with Firefox, weird. Konquerer works fine.
