    You need to tell us what wireless card or chip.

    If you don't know open a Konsole and type

    su
    then the root password (note this does not echo to the screen)

    lspci

    post the output or tell use the wireless device info

    Linux is case sensitive be sure you always use the case indicated in the instructions.

    Which command failed?

    su or lspci (this is LSPCI but lower case)

    lspci will list (ls) all your PCI devices

    You need to supply the exact model or chipset.

    If it is a usb device use

    lsusb

    Have you tried to set it up in Yast?

    lspci is in /sbin/ , so many distributions won't have it in a normal user's $PATH by default. You can either use su - to load root's $PATH when switching or just specify the full /sbin/lspci/
