hi there new to linux and trying to get everything up and running right. i have a D-Link Air Plus DWL-520+ card and i plug it in the pci slot and boot up and it doesnt show up under network adapters. i did plug it in after the install of opensuse. im a windows guy and used to the system finding new hardware. ive gone threw the control panel and yast menus and cant seem to find anything relating to adding/installing new hardware. any help would be great. thank you!
But, before you do anything, look at the last post.
The search for your card gives lots of results.
i searched and i found the post with the same exact card that i have… but in that post the card shows up on that users system. mine does not. when i boot up my card does not show up on my system. so that is my first question. how do i get my computer to recognize my wifi card. thanks.

Vendors have a very nasty habit of changing the chip in wireless
devices without changing the name/number, and sometimes not even the
version. Of course, the driver is dependent on the wireless chip.
You need to issue the command ‘/sbin/lspci -nnv’, find the stanza
that describes your wireless device and post that. Do not post the
entire output of that command.
