    Getting wireless running on open suse 11.4 using Dell 1490 Card


    I dont seem to be able to get Wireless working on my Open Suse 11.4 box . Its been hard trying for last couple of days The system details are as follows

    uname -r
    2.6.37.1-1.2-desktop

    My computer has a Dell wireless card .

    hwinfo --wlan --short

    Dell Wireless 1490 Dual Band WLAN Mini-Card .

    This is my first time ever configuring wireless on a suse linux and hence i may have made silly configuration related mistakes . Any pointers to rectify this problem would be gracefully accepted .

    Many thanks to those who will take time out to help . !!
