Using Wi-fi?

Postby md41 » Wed Aug 09, 2006 4:25 pm

Hey,

I have a BT Voyager 2091 ADSL Router and am using a openSUSE 10.1. Its is connected fine using the ethernet connection, however, it does not seem to work wirelessly?

I have an internal wifi card which obviously came with my laptop.

Any idea how to get it running?

Thanks in Advance

First of all, we'd need a clue as to what type of card you have. Run "lspci" in a root terminal and post the output here.

I just did, it's what you opened to run gedit /etc/fstab.
