Problems Problems Problems

So, I have OpenSUSE installed on my laptop and everything is working
well, except the wireless.  

It almost seems that every time I run a KDE distro I can not get the
internet to work.  

I've run YaST and used iwconfig. nothing is working for me.  

Please help

someone is going to tell you to supply some more information

'My wireless doesn't work - a primer on what I should do next -
openSUSE Forums' (

this is one of the stickies:

it suggests some info eg

> /sbin/lspci

The other alternative is to go here

'Benutzeranleitung/Usersguide von/of collectNWData |'

download this diagnostic script, designed for Suse; and run it;

you can paste the results back here; but a few minutes spent reading
the results might allow you to fix things yourself

(I recommend Peter's script above: provides extensive data)

good luck

The firmware is ok.
it is not a hardware issue.
I am able to see my wlan, along with others from neighbors. 

when I run iwlist scan my network comes up, but when I iwconfig under
wlan0 the ESSID is incorrect even though I used the network manager to
add mine.  

I am able to set it up using the GUI, the GUI also can detect my wlan. 
The problem arises when I try to connect.  

I can input all my network information.  Then each time I click it to
connect a pop up comes asking for my WEP.  I type it in and nothing

When I click the wlan settings icon it shows that my network is set up,
has a signal but there is a yellow shield with an exclamation point in
it next to the signal.

and as mentioned each time I try and click the wlan name to connect, it
pops up a box for my WEP.  When I enter it nothing happens.

What's making me angry is that it seems like every time I try to use
KDE, my wireless will not set up.  

I insert a boot disk for a distro with genome and the wireless set up
is cake.

Try deleting all connection in network manager and add in wlan0 again.
works all dreamy for me.

Or, delete networkmanager, change control to ifup and install WICD. 
Your problems sound exactly like the problems I had which were easily
solved doing the above.

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.

Hi, folks. Three days ago, I posted that Sunbird was refusing to import the ICS file from the Firefox Calendar Extension. Nobody replied, so I can only assume that one of three situations exists: 1) The file is corrupt, and no one wants to give me the bad news; 2) This is a known problem with Sunbird, but no one knows the solution; 3) Everyone is hard at work 24/7 trying to figure out the solution to my problem (LOL). I've already discovered that I can copy and paste each event from the calendar extension to Sunbird one by one. Before I devote many hours of my life to th...
