I used openSuse 11 32 bit Beta and I was able use my wifi card. But I upgrade (fresh install) to full version (still 32 bit) and I have big problem to connect by wireless.
I tried all recomendet steps:
2) install all packages for wlan:
rpm -qa wlan*
rpm -qa wireless*
3)I tried to use ndiswrapper but I not sure if I was succeeded
rpm -qa ndis*
Problem was where should have got a win driver. I downloaded exe file but I didn’t know I got “inf” file from it. So I installed it by wine and then used this file.
bcmwl5 : driver installed
device (14E4:4312) present (alternate driver: ssb)
Then I used modprobe ndiswrapper to load this module
And now what is wrong. When I’m trying connect to net I’m using KNetworkManager. This appl can “see” wireless connectins in good quality but I’m not able to connect with success! Message Log file:

I’m really frustrated, could anybody help please?
