    This is good news!

    This was the reason that I asked for the output of the dmesg | grep firmware command. When it doesn't give any output, that usually means things are OK. I guess I should have had you look more closely, as you would have had this fixed much sooner.

    Ubuntu includes this firmware by default, and I thought that Suse did too. I think that we both learned something on this one!

    Well, enjoy your wireless connection. It sure makes using Linux much more enjoyable.
