    Default help required with opensuse 13.1 with laptop lenovo g580 login with wifi driver enabled

    I use a Lenovo g580 laptop with wifi card from broadcom BCM4313. I cannot boot into opensuse with the wireless enabled. Login is possible only when wireless is disabled from the BIOS. When wireless is enabled, the screen gets freezed once i enter the user credentials. plz help me out of this situation. I am new into linux.

    Sounds like this problem:

    Do you have a different way to connect to the Internet? (wired maybe?)
    If yes, I would suggest to add the Packman repo (in YaST->Software Repositories, click on "Add" and select "Community Repositories").
    Then go into YaST->Software Management and install those two packages: broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop.

    If not, please download those two packages manually from here and install them:

    Afterwards your system should boot with wireless enabled, and wireless should even work...
