It is possible to configure a network in the first stage installation but it is only possible to select DHCP or Static + configure proxy. It is impossible to configure a secure wireless connection.

Agree absolutely. So annoying to have to move computer to my wired router in another room to simply install openSUSE.

Isn't this implemented already?

No, it's not. You can't configure wireless connection in first stage (Well, you can by running Linuxrc in
expert mode...).

Actually, you don't often need it for new installation, but you do for upgrade.
