No wireless connection on D-Link DWA 556


I have just installed OpenSuse on my desktop, and I am going to install it on my laptop later. However just now I have a tiny little problem.

I seem to be unable to get my wireless card to connect, it is a D-Link DWA 556 (ar5008) I think it said in hardware part. (Writing this as I have no real internet, until this is solved.)

I got so far as it found the network I wanted, and I typed in my wpa. However there came no icon near the clock for wireless computing, and it refuses to conect to my router.

Any suggestions would be nice, also remember I am very new to Linux.


Well, that turned out to be easy. All I needed to do was to switch to Networkmanager, and everything went exactly as planned.
