I am running SuSE 9 on a Dell Inspirion 3800 and I have a
DWL 650+ card for wirless and a Xircom card for Ethernet. Of
course I trade cards when going from wired to wireless....
I followed all the installation instructions and have even got the
light on the D-LINK card shining. So far so good. I type in
#iwconfig and am rewarded with the following info:
lo no wireless extensions.
sit0 no wireless extensions.
wlan0 v0.2.0pre5 ESSID:off/any

I go into Yast2 and configure a pcmcia wireless network... and
even so no network. Problem is, being a novice, I don't really
know where my problem lies. Is it with the drivers? Is it with
the configuration? Is it with SuSE 9?
Could someone please give me a friendly shove in the right
