    What's the actual model of the card? Suse may or may not support it. Does it show up in Yast --> Network Devices --> Network Card? You may just need to configure it.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    have you tried via YaST -> network drvices, do you get errors?

    also you can find out about your card with the
    Code:
    lsmod
    command in the termiinal.

    Try to configure it in YAST and see whether it will let you.

    When you select the wireless card and click on the Configure button, what does it ask for?

    Well, that's good actually...it sounds like it recognizes the card. The ESSID is the SSID from your wireless router...for linksys routers the default is usually linksys, and I've seen wireless and netgear as defaults for netgear routers.

    WEP is there for encryption. If you don't know what it is, you're probably not using it.

    Is there an option to allow the DNS server to be set by DHCP? If there is, you will want to use that option.
