I'm trying to get online with Suse 9.1. I have a Dlink 2.4 GHz Wireless PCI Adapter to a linksys broadband router. I have all the configs correct i think, but it just doesn't connect. It works fine in windows using the Dlink proprietary software, but in Linux I'm at a loss. HELP!

open up a console and type :

cat /etc/resolv.conf

and please copy the output of the commands here , so that I can see what is wrong.

Robert83, I am very pleased that you are trying to help me out. However, I am a brand new Linux idiot, and therefore I'm afraid your instructions to me have to be more descriptive in order for them to work for me. If you have the time to explain, I am forever in debt. Thank you again. fckwndws
What desktop are you running, KDE, Gnome? Do you know how to start a terminal? If there is a monitor type icon on the taskbar then click it with the mouse. A console window should open.

Type at the prompt
cat /etc/resolv.conf

Post the resultant output of each message.
Ok, I'm running KDE, i think that I got into a terminal. It prompted me for my password, then I typed some of the commands but they didn't work. well when i typed ifconfig it spit some stuff at me. but route and cat/etc/resolv.conf returned nothing... I just want to get connected to the internet so i can start using Linux primarily! thanks for any help!
I've never used a wireless card but check this out.
