    We need some more information from you.

    - wich desktop ?
    - Do you have a Network Manager applet in the system tray? If not, use YaST =>Network Devices => Network Settings. Under the "Global Options" tab, click on the "User Controlled with Network Manager" button. If it is already set, you will get a warning box when "Network Settings" starts.
    - Now you should see the NM applet in the tray. Click on it and check the popup. If the "Enable Wireless" checkbox is inactive (gray), there are several possibilities.
    - Open a terminal and provide this information :

    /usr/sbin/hwinfo --network

    hi hadi0x7c7
    i was assuming that you were dual booting ( then i looked up your posts )
    so win7

    some more info like what wireless ?
    a laptop or desktop ?
    a wireless home router? or a usb dongle ?

    ok from reading your other posts -- it is a laptop ( would be nice to know in THIS post)
    - so i am guessing a dongle
    so on this laptop are you using the KDE desktop ? or Gnome ?
