http://forums.opensuse.org – I have a Compaq pessario CQ60, a wireless network, and a Atheros AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter and I cant get the wireless internet to connect. the wireless works fine on vista, and I got the internet working via cable, but I need to get it working wirelessly. I am a beginner to linux, but know a little ( nothing in terminal though). I tried to connect using yast network settings, and both conections showed up ( wireless & wired), after trying to get it working ( including downloading + installing madwifi) and i eventually tried to get it working with Knetworkmanager, and it even recognised the wireless network, when I scanned for internet connections, it showed up in the map. please help me, and I hope that I have given enough information. please hep.
