    This is your device
    Code:
    43:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6200 [8086:4239] (rev 35)
            Subsystem: Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6200 2x2 AGN [8086:1311]
            Kernel driver in use: iwlagn
    It has a driver in place (iwlagn)

    I have never seen this device before, but I found this thread
    Intel Centrino Advanced - Linux Compatible?
    Read it all

    This is possibly what you need: http://software.opensuse.org/ymp/dri...ompat+wireless
    I see one user comment using ifup not network manager

    It a last resort but it's in the repos

    Guide: Madwifi or Ndiswrapper Wireless Network Drivers - Suse/openSUSE 10, 11.0

    To install just do
    Code:
    zypper in ndiswrapper
    Then follow the guide above. You need the wireless driver from XP I think (Only XP)

    i followed your steps.i get the following output


    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    'ndiswrapper' is already installed.
    No update candidate for 'ndiswrapper-1.56-11.3.i586'. The highest available version is already installed.
    Resolving package dependencies...

    Nothing to do.


    yes.i searched in softwares.opensuse.org for ndiswrapper and installed that package.but i can't found it on my installed softwares list.

    Thank you.

    Do you have the .inf file mentioned, that's the XP driver information file?
    Are you using kde or gnome
