    Default Some kind of wireless matter? Really need help..

    Hi, i just installed OpenSuse 10 on my acer aspire 4715z laptop.
    Previously I had been running linpus linux and had gotten the wireless card not work. Then i've tried that
    and everything I can think of to get the wireless up and running on this new install, but so far, no dice. The little light for my wireless card won't even turn blue. It just stays orange no matter how many times I switch it on/off. Any suggestions as to how I can get the wireless up and running?

    I've been thinking bout madwifi.. Does it really works in my case??? Help me!!!

    Could you please post the output of "hwinfo --wlan"? if the card should work with madwifi it needs to be an atheros chipset. I'm pretty sure someone could help you, if you'd provide some more detailed information.

    Thanks in advance!
