A funny thing happened. I removed my laptop from the internet cable and brought in my room. When I restarted, I notice that the kernel has changed to
linux-t8wa:~ # uname -r 220.127.116.11-0.1-default linux-t8wa:~ #
linux-t8wa:~ # uname -r 18.104.22.168-9-default linux-t8wa:~ #
So noticing the change, I decided to go into SUSE for a while just to edit the grub because I have a way of arranging my OS list. And lo and behold, when I went into SUSE, my wireless started to work! I AM NOW USING IT! Unbelievable! This is the first time I did it in two pages in this forum. And also, I am very happy to be successful now. I hade really frustrating times when I tried this a few months ago. Now I can also enjoy SUSE.
Thank you for just being there with your encouragements and bits and pieces of wisdom!
