Re: [SLE] Wireless Network Card



try iwconfig and see what it says

I am running SuSE 10.1/KDE 3.5.4 on my laptop with a new wireless router for my LAN.

Unfortunately, the KWiFiManager tells me that the wireless card is disabled. Scanning for networks results in the message that 'The scan is complete but no networks were found.,

Hardware information, via yast2, tells me that ACX 111 54Mbps Wireless Interface is present.

ifconfig gives me:

So, it would seem obvious, at least to my limited knowledge that OS isn't finding the wireless card.

What do I need to do?

I'm sending this from my laptop, but over my wired LAN

Thanks in advance.
