Can't get Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG to work

Hello forum,

I’m so happy with my brand new SuSE 11.1, except for one bad point: On my Acer Travelmate 290 notebook, I can’t get the built-in Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG WLAN card to work.

According to the list on

HCL/Network Adapters (Wireless - openSUSE

this should work with all versions prior to 11.1!?

Can someone please point me to a step-by-step instruction or tutorial on how to set up and test the WLAN card?

At least, I would like my card to “see my router” (or some other WLANs that I know to be around my house).

Any help is highly appreciated!

Thank you,
