    That is a firmware file, not a driver and is part of the package
    "atmel-firmware". Just install that package.

    Sorry should have mentioned, linux n00b here, am a windows user and have been using linux for about a year now, always struggling lol.

    Im using opensuse...i think its 8?

    When I click on that link it goes to a page with a install button, firefox downloads a file, i open it with yast and it says nothing to install?

    Thanks

    Points off for withholding information. The solutions that caf4926 and
    I gave were for 11.1.

    The firmware file you need can be found at
    http://www.thekelleys.org.uk/atmel/. Download the compressed tar file,
    decompress and unpack it, and copy the subject file to /lib/firmware.

    Note that wifi was extremely primitive in 10.3. You should be
    considering an upgrade, particularly as 10.3 will stop getting
    security upgrades in a couple of months.

    From what I just found with Google, that tc1000 is a bit underpowered;
    however, it should work fine with 11.1 as long as you use one of the
    light-weight desktops. I don't know how much memory you have, but KDE
    is likely to be very slow. I would suggest XFCE as a viable alternative.

    If you have a wired network connection, you might try a NET install.
    That will let you pick XFCE as the desktop. Installation from the Live
    CD will not. If no wired connection, then use the DVD.
