    That is from kernel:stable kernel but its also in the 5.3 kernel from Leap 15.2
    Done as suggested.

    Code:

    But, still no connection.

    Code:
     :~> sudo iwconfig[sudo] password for root: 
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.

    Look, thanks for all the work you have put into this, but I've been working on it since yesterday and I'm a bit burned out. I'm going to switch over to Ubuntu which works, and get back to any more suggestions you might have later.

    The openSUSE is stronger than the Ubuntu but still relatively weak, 30%. This is acceptable as I normally connect via eth0. The dongle is for dealing with cable interruptions. I think I can put the matter to rest and thank you for the work I have put you through.
