    Please use the search function. I also have this broadcom chip, and found several good treads about it. If it than still doesn't work, make a new tread.

    Step 1: Going to the homepage and search hardware. This takes you to:
    http://en.opensuse.org/HCL/Network_Adapters_(Wireless)

    And looking up your broadcomm card reads:

    "Native kernel driver. Needs firmware however. Install bcm43xx-fwcutter from
    DVD or OSS-repo and run as root the included script:
    install_bcm43xx_firmware from the /usr/sbin directory."

    For the parts of these instructions, just read the manual.

    For the "Install bcm43xx-fwcutter" part:
    http://en.opensuse.org/YaST_Software_Management

    For the "from DVD or OSS-repo" part:
    http://en.opensuse.org/Add_Package_Repositories_to_YaST
    (Should be already there, though)

    For "run as root" part:
    http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Login_as_root

    In short, for example:

    CTRL-ALT-F2
    root RETURN
    <rootpassword> RETURN
    zypper in bcm43xx-fwcutter RETURN
    /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware RETURN
    logout
    CTRL-ALT-F7
    REBOOT
