    Please read our two stickies, and provide the information associated with those stickies:
    Welcome - openSUSE Forums
    Additional wireless bits - openSUSE Forums

    ... without that, I think the probability of your getting someone volunteer to help you is much less.

    Okay well..

    1. It's a sis169u, that's all I know. It's in a Amilo li1818 laptop.
    2. ..
    3. No error message.
    4. I haven't tried much since I'm quite new to Linux, plus I've never been able to get it working myself on other Linux Distributions such as Ubuntu.
    5. OpenSUSE 11.0
    6. Will do once I get in from work.

    Here are the instructions someone posted to me for getting the wireless to work under Ubuntu, if that's any help:

    CODE
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 ndiswrapper-common


    CODE
    mkdir ~/.drivers


    CODE
    cd ~/.drivers


    CODE
    wget http://c0lin.org/leeswireless.zip


    CODE
    unzip -a leeswireless.zip


    CODE
    cd WLAN


    CODE
    sudo ndiswrapper -i sis163u.inf


    CODE
    sudo ndiswrapper -l


    CODE
    sudo ndiswrapper -m


    CODE
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper


    CODE
    sudo reboot


    CODE
    sudo gedit /etc/modules


    then add this to the bottom of the file after the last line:
    CODE
    ndiswrapper


    Save the file.

    CODE
    sudo reboot

    Edit: Additional Information -

    I can connect to the internet through LAN/Ethernet but I'm needing to connect through wireless, It doesn't show an option for Wireless, no wireless networks are displayed.

    I have some good friends who use Ubuntu, and think it is great. So I hope you share their experience. I won't disparage another distribution.

    I suspect the reason you obtained no response in this thread, is you ignored my post, where I provided a couple of links, which provide specific aspects you are asked to run and provide. You didn't do that, but rather you gave us what you decided you wanted to give, as opposed to what you were asked. I suspect the users who 'might' help you, are still waiting for the answer to the details requested in the threads I quoted.

    Best wishes in what ever Linux you decide to go with.
