    Can not connect to Wireless Network

    Hello,
    I am trying to Demo the Suse Enterprise Linux Desktop version 11 SP3
    my company wants to demo RedHat and Suse.
    I want Suse Enterprise Linux Desktop SP3 but I'm having a Real Simple issue
    I can enable internet or get on the internet via wireless
    I downloaded SLED 11 sp3 last night.

    Where do you enable to show the wireless bars that
    usually show you are connect to the wireless Network after you enter network name and password.


    Hardware,
    Toshiba Laptop Satellite Harman/Kardon
    Model A505-S6033 System Unit
    cpu Intel i7 quad core


    I have used Centos, Linux Mint and Ubuntu Linux.
    And I can connect ok with using my built in Wireless on my Laptop.
    Or by using my 2 usb devices that are wireless one is Netgear and other is default from Cable Company my ISP.

    On Suse Linux Desktop Enterprise
    If I go to Control Center/Network Settings
    My Nic Card built in and My Wireless Built in shows up.
    My 2 other devices I plugged in that are wireless network devices also shows up under here.
    However, I enter the Edit for either one of them
    and I scan for Network and enter my Wireless Network password.
    and then click next.

    it exits ok
    but when I open Firefox
    I don't get a connect to the internet

    can someone help please?

    This is something that is usually so simple to do
    on my windows 7/8 os
    on my Ubuntu Linux
    on my Linux Mint and etc.

    Why is this so hard to find and connect with???

    thx
    Don Curry

    Hi
    So the wirless icon in the taskbar shows as connected? Have you checked
    the dmesg output, it may be looking for firmware.

    No the wireless connect don't show at all.
    I can plugin my ether net plug and it will work.
    I can not connect via wireless
    nothing shows
    I DONT EVEN SEE A WIRELESS ICON IN THE TASK BAR :-)
    even when I connect via network plug cable.

    thanks for reply

    Hi
    So have you checked the dmesg output for any firmware being required?

    Can you post the output from the command;
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk |grep -A3 Network

    Re: Can not connect to Wireless Network

    It sounds like your system has not detected your wireless NIC. Post the
    'dmesg' output as malcolmlewis mentioned as that may help. It may also
    help for you to describe your system a bit, particularly the wireless
    part. Using SLES 11 SP3 on my laptop I can get online without any extra
    work, but I likely have a different wireless NIC, so back to the driver
    issue. Often adding those is easy, but it'd help to know what you have
    and how the system sees it. Perhaps also post the output to the following
    command:

    Code:
    --------------------
    /sbin/lspci -v
    --------------------

    Good luck.
