    While waiting for the wireless guru's to chime in on this thread, you could start by reading the stickies in this subforum area: Wireless

    Its highly unlikely just advising you have a Dell Inspiron n4010 and openSUSE-11.4 will be enough information to give to anyone to help. Those stickie provide advise as to the information you need to provide.

    Some elaboration is needed. Quite a bit.
    Is NetworkManager not picking things up? What are you running, KDE or Gnome?
    A post of
    Code:
    rfkill
    and
    Code:
    lsusb
    will be helpful, you'll probably have to install rfkill
    Code:
    sudo zypper in rfkill
    In the meantime, make sure your wireless switch is on and try
    Code:
    su
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    iwconfig wlan0 essid "your network name" ap ma:ca:dd:re:ss
    dhcpcd wlan0
    Where the ma:ca:dd:re:ss is the mac address of your router. You may find it with
    Code:
    iwlist wlan0 scan
