As i mentioned in my previous post eh0 did not get an ipaddress
because i left the cable out. If i plug the cable in then eh0 would
work perfectly. I guess i would not be able to tell wlan0 was not
working if the cable connection was working as i would get to the
outside world?

O.k., you are right but you should play the "pissed one" if somebody
tries to summarize/support known issues.

I'm not sure if you are using the SUSE box for writing these messages ...

Now we would need an information to the routing. Could you please post
the output of "route -n" ?

Here it is:

linux:/home/graham # route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use
Iface
192.168.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 wlan0
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 wlan0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
0.0.0.0 192.168.0.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 wlan0

The route table looks perfect ...

Next question: Is your router located within subnet 192.168.0.0, i.e. is
the router's IP address 192.168.0.1 ?

You can get this information by connecting your notebook to the router
and restarting the network services. An "ifconfig" and/or "route -n"
might bring some light in the dark ...
