    Default Intel 2915ABG wireless card not working on Opensuse 11

    Hi, I'm just installed opensuse 11 on my laptop and it doesn't detect my wireless card (it works fine out of the box in fedora). When I go to Yast network settings I get this message:

    Code:
    PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection (Not connected)
    BusID : 0000:05:04.0
    Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details.
    I've ran some of the commands suggested in the stickies from this forum:

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci
    
    05:04.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network 
    Connection (rev 05)
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -n
    
    05:04.0 0280: 8086:4223 (rev 05)
    Code:
    dmesg

    sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan

    Unfortunately I don't have access to a wired network so installing anything from yast might be difficult for me. I'm fairly new to Linux so some of the output from these commands are meaningless to me... Any help is appreciated!

    If anyone runs across this thread I discovered that the problem was not a driver problem, it was a problem with irq conflicts. The solution to me was to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and add irqpoll to the kernel line.
