No wireless in 11.2 - troubleshooting failure at "ifconfig" test step

linux-howto

http://forums.opensuse.org – I've gone through the trouble-shooting procedure discussed in the "lwfinger" stickies. My results are shown below. Output of all test steps looks fine until I run "ifconfig" - no valid IP address is reported. My access point works fine with other devices (including an existing 11.1 install). My detailed trouble-shooting output is shown below. Thanks in advance for any assistance with this very frustrating problem. TROUBLE-SHOOTING SUMMARY - wpa_supplicant software is installed - network controller data are identified by "lspci" commands (no switch, -v, -n), including: + Network controller is Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABF [Golan] + Kernel driver in use: iwl3945 - dmesg reports: + iwl3945 0000:05:00.0: loaded firmware version 15.32.2.9 - dmesg also indicates many interations of "authenticated/deauthenticated" cycle; partial output cited below shows all variations - iwconfig reports valid ESSID and non-null access point - iwlist finds my AP, details shown below *** FIRST INDICATION OF PROBLEM HERE: - output of ifconfig includes "inet6 addr: fe80::218:deff:fe5a:b30f/64 Scope:Link" - NOT CONSISTENT WITH TROUBLE-SHOOTING GUIDE *** When I ping what I think the IP address is, I get "Network is unreachable" *** When I ping a known address (66.70.73.150), I get the same message TROUBLE-SHOOTING DETAIL Verification of installed software: wpa_supplicant ver. 0.6.9-4.3 john@linux-g9kq:~> /sbin/lspci -- snip
