http://forums.opensuse.org – I just installed Opensuse 11.2 dual-booting with Windows 7 on a laptop. I have the wireless set up and connected, but I can't seem to be able to connect to any websites or ping Google, etc. I'm kind of a Linux newbie, so I'd like to get some advise as to what I can check to get it working? (Windows 7 on the same machine is able to connect - I'm using it now) Edit: Some additional details: - I've tried both automatic DHCP configuration and also setting the ip/dns server manually, no luck (Distributions)
