    Default Dell Inspiron 1271 Wireless problem

    Hello there. I have one little problem. The openSUSE can't find my wireless card by default. So I was just wondering if somebody can guide me through the process?
    BTW my wireless card is Dell WIreless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card (from everest and will post it later if u would need the openSUSE "way")

    Wireless problems are better handled in the wireless subforum.

    If you run the command '/sbin/lspci -nnv | grep 14e4', you will see
    that you have a device with PCI ID of 14e4:432X. Those devices are not
    yet handled by the Linux driver b43. You should install the package
    for the Broadcom-wl driver.
