Why Linksys WUSB54GC is not working with openSUSE 12.1?
  

I am getting an issue to use Linksys WUSB54GC with openSUSE 12.1. it was working fine with the Windows 7 x64. The device was listed in Yast and I have configured the same without having any trouble. But still I was not able to get the internet connection. I am using Ralink RT73 and driver was rt73usb. Any help to resolve the issue would be appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.

If you are not able to make the connection which is going through YAST and then you should run below mentioned command. Well you will require to use sudo or su on the basis of your setup.
Code:
ifconfig wlan0

iwlist wlan0 scan

iwconfig wlan0 essid dd-wrt

dhcpcd wlan0

Well I already executed above mentioned command and it did not worked for me. Even I tried to enter IP, mask, gateway and DNS. However the above mentioned two were active hence I tried to enter IP and mask. As Yast was writing the configuration there was an error message ‘No working networks’.

I think you should try to remove .pid file and after that you should try to run dhcpcd.
Code:
rm /var/run/dhcpcd-wlan0.pid
dhcpcd wlan0

Well if you are getting time out error every time then you have to set card to 5.5M. if you have not done that you should run the below mentioned command. Make sure that DHCP is not running quickly.
Code:
ps ax | grep -i dhcp
I got below mentioned code
Quote:
23302 pts/0 S+ 0:00 grep --colour=auto -i dhcp
23432 ? Ss 0:00 /sbin/dhcpcd wlan1 -h icehouse

Now you should run the below mentioned command.
Code:
ifconfig wlan0 up

iwconfig wlan0 rate 5.5M auto


iwconfig wlan0 essid dd-wrt

dhcpcd wlan0

Well I am highly suspecting that the issue has been associated with Network manager. I have installed OpenSUSE 12.1 and I activated the network by using traditionally with ifup. It seems to be ok but after enabling the Network Manager I was started to get an error message.

If any of the above mentioned solutions are not working then i doubt that it is concerned with the bug issue. So you should contact the developer and see whether it is working or not.
