no wifi or tablet mode on Toshiba Portege 3500

hi I have been trying several days to get my wi-fi and tablet working but i can’t figure out whats wrong i have tried the madwifi drivers they didn’t work the documentation says it could either be atheos or something else. as for tablet i tried several of the tablet modes in yast and for the life of me i can’t get it to work.
could someone who has these working give me some directions to get these things working.

Hi there. I too have a 3500 tablet. I installed 11.0 without a hitch but I can’t get the pen to work either. Wifi works though it worked out of the box, so to say. I have to admit, I have an Intel 2200BG mini-pci card and not that crap-tastic card that came with mine…

Any assistance on the pen would be greatly appreciated! BUMP for 3500 user (just cause I think the 3500’s suck) >:)
