OpenSUSE Install :: Logging In And Auto Connecting Wireless Access?

Sep 1, 2011

I just recently switched to openSUSE 11.4 from Ubuntu 10.10 so I am very new to this distro and Linux in general. My question is this.Is there a way to make it so that I don't have to keep entering my root password in order for the OS to connect to my wireless?Every time I login the KDE Wallet Service pops up and asks for my passwordI know that it is there for security and what not but it'd be nice if I could just login and the laptop connects to the point without needing a password every time

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Wireless Network - But No Access

Aug 7, 2011

I have a fairly new install of 10.04 on a Dell laptop (about a week). Everything was running well, connecting wirelessly to the interneet through my home router (WPA/WPA2). Today, for some reason, I lost my connection to the internet. The network manager tells me I'm connected to my router, but all the lines on the wifi indicator are gray and there is no internet access. I reinstalled the 2 sets of packets for my BCN4312 (bcmwl-kernel-source and b43-fwcutter ), but no change.

Debian Hardware :: Wireless - Connecting To The Same Unencrypted Access Point

Jun 1, 2010

My wireless is 'almost' working, but frustratingly not quite there. Debian Testing (squeeze). I have two different wireless adapters. Both work flawlessly from an ubuntu live CD in the same machine, connecting to the same unencrypted access point so the problem is not faulty hardware, weak signal, overpowering signal, interference from other AP's, MAC filtering, or anything to do with WPA.

I have loaded the correct (I think) firmware packages for both adapters. dmesg is not complaining about missing or incompatible firmware. I have googled the various error messages reported in dmesg and found that the /etc/Wireless/RT2860STA/RT2860STA.dat missing config file is normal. I could not find anything that I understood concerning the BSS returned, data->length messages but since I see the same thing in Ubuntu (where the wireless is working flawlessly) I assume they are also normal and not related to the problem.

Both adapters can see all the available access points (using iwlist {iface} scan or using gui tools such as wicd, wifi-radar) NEITHER adapter will associate with any access point (and I've tried three different unencrypted AP's so far). I can connect to all/any of these AP's from an ubuntu live CD using the exact same hardware, so this is NOTHING to do with MAC filtering, etc... using 'iwconfig {iface} essid' as root to set the essid "appears" to work, but simple does not set the ESSID on either wireless adapter.

Using the GUI tools (which are only a front end for the command line tools so I have no idea why everyone thinks a GUI front end like wicd will magically work where the command line tools don't!!) I simply wait a long time for "getting network address" before it eventually fails. LOTS of information in pastebin, please make the effort to read it before asking me for things I have already supplied. And please keep any "RTFM noob" or "go back to ubuntu" replies to yourself. I HAVE read the f*cking documentation and I do not want to go back to ubuntu. I just want to get my wireless working in debian.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Logging Into A Nonbroadcasting Network

Feb 7, 2011

I'm a recent convert to SUSE (well, linux generally), been running it happily on my desktop for about eight months now. So when I learned about KDE plasma netbook I jumped at the opportunity to put it on my laptop too.I have an Acer Aspire One, with an Atheros AR5001 wifi card. I'm not having any luck with knetworkmanager so I did my config in YaST. I can't get on my home wireless network, and I think the problem has something to do with the fact that it doesn't broadcast SSID. Connection works when I set my router to broadcast - I can ping, browse the web, etc. I can't even ping it when it's not broadcasting.

I have checked, and the AR5001 is supported natively (so sayth the web).I'm not lacking any firmware, per the stickied checklist. I can even scan and find my neighbor's (broadcasting SSID) setup. Where do I go next?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless - Connecting To Router Using Wep Key

Feb 15, 2010

I made some tests with a router without security and my internet connexion worked without any problem. But if I activated the wep security (or wpa it is the same behaviour) suse 11.1 won't connect in any way.

I used knetwork manager and traditional ifup method, both failed to connect.

I saw, using iwconfig that in both cases (wpa or wep) I was associated with the AP but dhclient won't work in any way, I was always in the APIPA...

I checked if there weren't any access control (mac address filtering, ...) and all the settings in the router were off to give me full access. Including the firewall set to off. The DHCP feature was on in both cases.

I noticed that the firewall must be on in suse 11.1 otherwise I couldn't have any connections even if I disabled wep or wpa...

Ubuntu :: GDM Auto Login Doesn't Work After Logging Out?

Mar 4, 2010

I'm trying to configure an autologin account for a kiosk. I can create the user, no problem. I can set the user to automatically log in, no problem. I can set a delay in the automatic login so that someone is given a chance to log in using their own account, no problem. But if the autologin user logs out, then gdm does not automatically log it back in. This is where I'm stumbling. It seems that for such kiosk uses like this such behaviour would be a bug and not a feature.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Connecting On 11.3

Jan 24, 2011

I am facing issues in connecting to wifi after upgrading to 11.3 from 11.2. My laptop has Intel 5100 wireless. I had searched through the forum and did find some workarounds(like updating options.conf, removing /etc/NetworkManager directory, using ifup instead of network manager) but all those are not working for me. It will disconnect within a few mins after restaring network service. Has anyone heard about any fix from Intel guys for this and if yes then where can I get that? I had faced hell lot of difficulties while upgrading coz of many unresolved dependencies and don't want to go back to 11.2

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Connecting To AP Via Wireless - 11.3

Jan 30, 2011

I've tried really hard to avoid posting on here, but nothing that I've tried has worked. I just installed openSUSE 11.3 GNOME Desktop. It's my first time using openSUSE, but I do have a little bit of Linux experience. I have the following wireless network card:

0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01) c:00.0 0280: 14e4:4315 (rev 01)

I switched control of network setup to YaST (Traditional Method with ifup). It installed the firmware automatically for me. I set up connection configurations as follows:

- Dynamic Address: DHCP
- Operating Mode: Managed
- Network Name: Hetts (I was able to scan and it found my ESSID)
- Authentication Mode: No Encryption (I was using WPA2 and having trouble so for now I've switched my router to use no encryption just to try and get something working)

After setting this up and clicking OK, it should automatically configure and connect, right? I've tried a bunch of things including rebooting and deleting the wireless card configuration and starting over by reinstalling the firmware. I've also tried setting up the connection using NetworkManager and still have the same problem. I have my laptop setup to dual boot, and when I boot in Windows, wireless works perfectly fine, so there is nothing wrong with my hardware or router. Here are some of the outputs I'm getting:

[Code]...

I tried adding the IP address manually too using "ip addr add ...", but still no connection. I can't even ping the access point at 192.168.1.1. Sorry for such a long post, but it seemed to be common for people to not post enough information, so I put as much as I could think of.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Connecting On 11.4

May 23, 2011

I just converted over from Ubuntu, and so am quite new to this new system architecture. Please give me just a little patience I just installed 11.4 on my EEEPC 901. All works great, except the RT2860 wireless, which will search and attempt to connect, but does not ever manage to connect. All updates were installed through Ethernet, and multiple access points have been tried. I also have tried open connection with no encryption.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Knetworkmanager No Connecting On One Particular Wlan?

Jan 20, 2010

on kde4 with knetworkmanager I cannot get past the wep security key on my home router. Every other wlan works, ethernet works, settings are definitely correct because it works with windows, other computers.And on the same computer even with gnome networkmanager! Also it used to work fine earlier. Behavior the same with different users including root, regardless of using kwallet or not. Networkamanager tries to connect and after one or two minutes throws the setting window back at me. I uninstalled and re-installed and deleted all related files I could think of. I even tried a complete fresh installation of opensuse only keeping the /home partition, so the problem must be lying there I guess. But then why all users?

PS opensuse 11.2
kde networkmanager 0.9.svn1043876-1.1.1

OpenSUSE Wireless :: TP WN727N Not Connecting To Network

Feb 26, 2011

I just bought a new USB wireless adapter for my openSUSE 11.3 laptop, a TP-Link TP-WN727N. I can't get the new card to connect to my home wireless network, which is named WRT320N in the screenshot. KDE prompts for the key repeatedly but never connects successfully. Part of the problem might stem from the fact that this laptop now has 2 wireless cards: one build into chipset (PRO/Wireless 3945ABG) and the new USB card. Both show up in knetworkmanager but no clear distinction is made between them visually. Strangely my wireless network shows up twice in knetworkmanager as in the screenshot. Once per wireless card? As my wireless network is N-only I don't see why it would do this.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Automatically Connecting To Network?

Apr 9, 2011

Just moved over to openSUSE 11.4 (KDE) from Ubuntu, yesterday. However, I'm having some trouble with my wireless connection.

I have a wireless network with a hidden SSID and WPA2-PSK security. I entered all the nescery information into the KDE network manager, but it couldn't find my network. So I ran the usual command:

Code:
su -c iwlist wlan0 scanning essid [My SSID]

At which point, the network manager immediately found, and connected to, the network. However, it seems that I have to run this command (as root) each time I log in, before my laptop will connect to the network. The network manager has no problem find the plethora of unsecured networks as well as those that are secure, but broadcast their SSID.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Auto-reconnect Wifi When It Is Down?

Apr 10, 2010

I have my openSUSE 11.2 connected to router by wifi. I want frequently to access it from my LAN or even Internet, but even so frequent the connection is lost for some reason.

When I am at the box, I can easily do a ifdown/ifup and it will reconnect, but that is a pain when I am not local.

is there some way or maybe a script to check the connection so now and then and if not online then re-connects it automatic ?

OpenSUSE Network :: Firefox - Kmail Not Connecting Through Wireless

Apr 22, 2010

I've spent 29 hours trying to figure this out. And I'm about to blow my brains out. Fresh install 11.2. - 64bit but tried 32 bit and same thing. Dell studio 1734. Broadcom wireless and wired. Installed broadcom drivers (b43) through yast. Wired eth0 works. Wireless eth1 works. Surf with Firefox fine. BUT. Kmail will not connect through wireless. Nor can I access repositories through wireless.

Tried blacklisting B43 in ssb no change. What in the hell is going on? I've searched forum after forum and tried everything and CANNOT make this happen.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Bluetooth Not Connecting After Upgrading Broadcom-wl

Oct 1, 2010

today I installed Opensuse 11.3 on my new laptop, a Samsung R540. Initially I got my Logitech bluetooth mouse working because I hate the touch pad, then I got the wireless network working by upgrading the kernel with the broadcom-wl package at which point the Logitech bluetooth mouse stopped working. I am able to detect the mouse when I go to add new devices using the gnome-bluetooth applet but it times out when it tries to connect.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Computer Crashes When Connecting To Internet?

May 20, 2011

This problem started a few days ago. Whenever I attempt to connect to a wireless connection via network manager, my computer completely crashes, going to a black screen with no input from keyboard or mouse. It forces me to reboot using the power switch. Everything works fine when I connect to an ethernet cable, so I am sure it's a problem with my wireless driver.

I already tried (successfully) reinstalling the ath9k driver via compat wireless as was the advice from other forums, but this had no effect. I'm currently running opensuse 11.4, and haven't had this problem until a few days ago

This problem seems a bit ridiculous for a task as simple as connecting to a wireless network, so I'm convinced that either there is some sort of relatively simple way of fixing it, or windows really is the only decent operating system out there..

OpenSUSE Install :: Window Managers Won't Start When Logging In From Kdm

slash page comes up fine. KDM greeting page and username selector come up. I can choose a session.

If I choose anything other than 'failsafe' (KDE failsafe, KDE, TWM, IceWM, etc), it accepts my password and then just sits there

If I login via failsafe, then type 'startkde', KDE starts up fine and I get all my windows, virtual desktops, etc.

I also just noticed these installed as well:

Nothing in .xsession-errors

The only thing I could find in /var/log/messages that looked close was this:

OpenSUSE Install :: Clear Terminal When Booting And Logging Out?

I've noticed on other Linux distributions that after boot up and logging off the console screen clears and provides basic information like the Linux distribution and then under it the login prompt. How can I do this for openSUSE 11.3?After I install or reboot I still have all the boot up stuff shown and when I logout after performing some work my commands are still shown. I boot the system to runlevel 3 and barely use the GUI but would like the screen to clear everything after boot up and logging out.

OpenSUSE Network :: Connecting To Home Wireless In 11.3 - No Connection (websites Will Not Load)

Jan 22, 2011

I've just installed openSUSE 11.3 for the first time on a Dell E1505 notebook and am having problems connecting to my home wireless network. Using the Network Manager I've been able to find my home network and connect after entering the network password. After a minute or two the wireless network is still shown as active but their is no connection (websites will not load).

I'm completely new to Linux so I have almost no clue what could be causing this. I have tried connecting the notebook hardwired (Ethernet) to the router and get a perfect connection if that information helps any.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Sager 8120 Intel Centrino N-6300 Not Connecting

Mar 5, 2011

Alright this is my first post on here and I hope I got sufficient Information for you available. I ran Ubuntu based Distros before but this is the first time under a Debian based Distro for me. I got a newlaptop and this one does not seem to let me get my wireless to work after multiple efforts

My problem: My Intel Centrino N-6300 () does not seem to find any network connections.

My previous attempts: (Some of which required me to reinstall Suse)

1. I installed new kernels as my first assumption was that the kernel was not supporting it. I know now that it is supported.

2. I installed drivers from http://intellinuxwireless.org/ which was pointless.

3. I installed backports (THat was still under Linux Mint. Same problem there.)

4. I tried NDiswrapper without success.

5. I checked rfkill as you can see further down below.

Alright here are some of my info's I have collected so far. Let me know if anything is missing.

RFkill:
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

[Code].....
