Dear Linux community,

At least i got me Laptop running with OpenSUSE 10.0.

you can use windows drivers also. you'll need ndiswrapper. You can install it via yast.

after it in shell:

# ndiswrapper -i filename.inf

filename should be a file like bcmwl5a.inf

# ndiswrapper -l show you driver.

after that load it:

# ndiswrapper -m

goto yast

in wireless card's configuration write ndiswrapper to the module name. and do other settings.

if there are other cards deactivate them as

ifconfig eth0 down
that'all.
