    Sorry, got distracted googling stuff and came across a community software repository where I found more ralink firmware so I'm trying that now

    It does seem to load up the correct driver into the kernel looking at your log.
    So should be ready to work. I would recommend configuring it with YaST.

    I'd love to

    Can't seem to figure it out how to configure it though, tried using the NetworkManager and tried Network Settings in YaST (with both NetworkManager & ifup).

    NetworkManager doesn't seem to see anything and tried switching to ifup mgmt & adding the device manually but it disappears when YaST runs it's config after selecting [ok]
    #tail -f /var/log/messages

    May 3 00:18:13 ck06 nm-dispatcher.action: Script '/etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/nfs' exited with error status 6.

    Thanks for the link.
    Configuring Wireless Cards

    To configure a wireless card, use the Network Card module. Some WLAN cards need a firmware image that must be loaded into the card when the driver is initialized. This is the case with , , and . Easily install the firmware with the YaST Online Update. The firmware for Intel PRO/Wireless cards ships with SUSE Linux and is automatically installed by YaST as soon as a card of this type is detected.
    What does this mean...like how is it saying to use the , , and . to easily install the firmware.
    I tried the online update and nothing is available (also searched with . and ,,)

    Here is what it says under my Hardware Devices for the USB Dongle:

    I'm thinking the 'Config Status' has something to do with it but not sure how to fix it

    Enable the card with YaST.

    Open up a terminal and execute yast
    Choose: Network Devices -> Network Card.
    Enable Controlled with NetworkManager

    Press Next
    Choose the card you want to configure. Press Edit.

    Check settings for:
    General
    Address
    Routing

    Press finish.

    Should do the trick I guess.

    Thanks for your help, I've tried it and it doesn't work.
    I think that it isn't installed properly and/or configured properly...and YaST doesn't allow me to fix it.

    I think the solution is a new non-ralink wireless adapter that works without manually editing configuration files & compiling stuff. (Or at least comes with clear directions)

    I don't mind a little bit of work to get something working but I'm not really the Slackware/Gentoo type of user.

    I appreciate everyones help, thanks again.
