of the Access Point that is.
I just installed Suse Linux 9.1 Personal and it's great!! However, no wireless card access:
even stranger, I didn't try to configure it initially, but it found the access point, established a connection, and obtained an IP lease. However, I couldn't get to the internet, only to the AP. If I boot the same machine into W2k, everything's fine, if I work through eth0, everything's fine (incidentally, eth0 accesses the same AP through a bridge).
So, in trying to figure this out, I assigned an IP address and a gateway through YAST2, and consequently have lost everything.
Now, when I iwconfig wlan0, I get:
The essid and AP MAC address are correct.
wlan0 IEEE 802.11-DS ESSID:"."

When I ifconfig wlan0 after setting an ip address and gateway, I get:
This is the ip address I assigned and the MTU set at the AP.

A route turns up:
and honestly, I'm not sure what it all means, but it seems to be similar to the table when I have eth0 turned on.

What do you make of that??? It looks like everything is right, but clearly something isn't. Any suggestions?
Also, I switch from eth0 to wlan0 using:
Thanks in advance for any help, I REALLY need to get this up.
