http://forums.opensuse.org – Per the "My wireless doesn't work" thread: 04:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 8190 04:00.0 0280: 10ec:8190 dmesg | less reveals nothing about this device (although it does show my wired ethernet). usr/sbin/iwconfig returns "no such file or directory." Hardware Information has no line for the kernel driver. Device Identifier is 98704. Resources shows no hardware address. dmesg | grep firmware returns nothing. sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan shows only lo and eth0. I've found the windows driver in .exe format but not .sys, and I can't figure out how to use ndiswrapper on the command line anyway (ndisinstaller doesn't seem to work in 11.2). I've found the linux driver as well, but I don't know how to install it. Help would be greatly appreciated. I'd rather use the Linux drivers (ndiswrapper with this card was unstable in Ubuntu), but any solution would be welcome. (Distributions)
