    Try this link.
    WiFi HOWTO - openSUSE.
    Which tool are you using? Network manager?

    EDIT: added correct link for Yast Setup.

    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    You now should open YaST and configure the wireless device. Have it use NetworkManager to control it, and use DHCP for the address. I also uncheck the part about starting at boot. Wireless connections usually need a password for the connection, which you cannot do during the boot process. This will just prolong the boot process, until it times out.
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.

    Hi guys,

    Please forgive me for daring to put my hands in between two of the greatest minds on this forums but I hope that this suggestion may also be of help as per my little experience.

    After installation I did the following:

    1) online update yast
    2) Patch download and installation
    3) Reboot
    4) Followed instructions on this:

    PackMan :: Package details for broadcom-wl

    I went for this one and I had my wireless working without a hitch. Hope it works for you too

    Because does not appear in ifconfig it does not mean your network card is not there, try with iwconfig, it should appear your wireless card if it is recognized by your system.
