http://forums.opensuse.org – I have a Toshiba Satellite L305-SP6944C, Pentium Dual Core 2.16, 2GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, DVD-RAM UJ880AS, display 15.6 TFT widescreen, ethernet Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express, WLAN Realtek RLT8187, Opensuse 11.2 and KDE 4.3.1. Installation was OK and finally the wireless card is working... but I don't have conectivity bacause in the browser (Firefox) appears a message saying "the server can't be found" I follow the howto write by Swerdna (Thanks a lot man your e-mail help me very much). With ndiswrapper I install the XP driver for RLT8187, KnetworkManager is in charge of connections showing both eth0 and wlan0, the wireless sign of router Dlink DIR-280 is OK, in the dialog box of network connection I put the mac address of the wlan card but I think that is not the problem. I hope someone can help me to this little issue. Other thing that I missed is that I don't find boot.ini at any directory to add modprobe ndiswrapper in the boot sequence, in etc/init.d/ appears a "boot" file, is this file that I have to change to modprobe ndiswrapper??
