    Hi, i need help, i compiled and installed ndiswrapper with no errors, i can see the AP, <b>i can connect<b>, wlan0 is active, firewall is down,<b> but no data can pass <b>.
    the only odd thing ive found is "serial8250: too much work for irq10" @ dmesg

    i'm new at linux, i'm loving it and just need this to work to be able to use it.

    thanks for the time.
    Francis

      I'm having the same problem. Using the Broadcom BCM94306 wireless card on Suse 9.2. I'm trying to connect to a public wireless network. The ESSID is correct and I am able to connect to the access point and get an IP address through DHCP. I can ping the access point but nothing beyond that and I can't bring up any webpages. My best guess is that I'm missing something with the DNS or gateway setup. One other thing, I was able to connect to my friend's wireless network and browse the different workstations on it. Again I was unable to get internet access though. Any thoughts? Like the OP I'm a newb but enjoying Linux.
