I'm running a Fedora 17 desktop system that I've decided to put an OEL 6 virtual machine on. I built the VM first with virtual network NAT the default but discovered that only the host could communicate with it. After reading the available documentation (which I probably should have done first) I found that I needed to use a bridged network on the host so the VM would be available on my LAN.
Is there a way of wireless networking without using the Gnome NetworkManager Applet? I want to connect to the Internet using a USB 3G modem and connect to wifi without knowing all of the details of every network.
I'm trying the new openSUSE 11.3 and I got a problem:
vmware workstation bridged networking (vmnet0) doesn't work with the wifi connetion (wlan0) both with linux and windows guest vm; if I use a wired connection (eth0) all work fine; with vmware nat networking (vmnet8) everything is ok both with eth0 and wlan0.
I'm having a strange problem with my netbook (Dell Mini 9 with Fedora 11). I can connect to my wireless access point, but once I disconnect (restart netbook, etc), my netbook finds the access point, yet the passphrase doesn't get authenticated. It just tries and tries, with no connection. I can see all of the wireless networks in the area, so I know that the wireless card is working.
