    It could be. What does the console command '/usr/sbin/lsusb -v' say about your
    zd1211?

    The lines above match the codes in the zd1211 driver, thus it will work. Once
    you have installed the firmware using YaST Software Management, then go to
    Network Devices / Network Settings and configure your wireless.
