    Hello and Welcome!

    If you can get a physical connection, try this in a terminal.
    Code:
    sudo zypper install b43-fwcutter
    sudo /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware

    After poking around a little more, it seems that the b43 driver set can sometimes have issues with your specific card.
    I did find this, though. Install Broadcom Drivers from Packman - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

    Give that a shot. Post back with results.
