I've never really had much to do with wifi. I bought a new laptop, and at the
local mall's food court are "free wifi" circulars. Also, Starbucks is going
to free wifi.
At home, my laptop (opensuse 10.3) is hardwired to my 4 computer 192.168.0.0
static ip network at 1g. It has an internal network card and an internal
100m wifi card (Broadcom, which I hear is awful to set up). If I can't get
that to work I also have a Linksys USB card.
I really don't know anything about this. I was looking at the yast help
screen in "Network Devices," and that has a check-a-box for Network Manager,
but as a FVWM user I'm wondering if I can use it. I also don't know anything
about ESSIDs or WEP passwords, or anything else.
Is there a SUSE specific resource that will get me up to speed on this
BTW, before anyone jumps in to tell me how insecure it is, I should mention
that I subscribe to a service which encrypts all my internet traffic through
