if have recently installed OpenSuse 11.1 from a dvd and then, following this advice , upgraded to 11.2, 11.3, 11.4 and finally 12.1 (no comment on this one, please...). Now the problem is that my wlan0 is not coming up... i have it configured via yast to not use netmanager and a static ip4 adresse. I have found the file /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0 (link to gist.github). which looks good to me. If the system is just powered on and i then set
ifconfig wlan0 $myip up route add default gw $mygw
for wlan0 and a default route. The interface works.
I really would like to get advice how i can solve this. I have looked to the output of dmesg
dmesg | grep wlan0
and that told me
[ 31.065187] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready [ 34.212555] wlan0: authenticate with 00:22:b0:99:a6:63 (try 1) [ 34.215568] wlan0: authenticated [ 34.220333] wlan0: waiting for beacon from 00:22:b0:99:a6:63 [ 34.270308] wlan0: beacon received [ 34.274061] wlan0: associate with 00:22:b0:99:a6:63 (try 1) [ 34.277096] wlan0: RX AssocResp from 00:22:b0:99:a6:63 (capab=0x431 status=0 aid=2) [ 34.277099] wlan0: associated [ 34.285948] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready
However i cannot interpret this...
