OS11.2 installed but WLAN(Atheros5212) Problem

Hello everybody,

After been convinced by an exchange student from Nashville I am hosting here in Germany I went into openSuse 11.2. I installed and got openSuse 11.2 to work. I must admit, that I was very impressed. It is more than 10 years that I tried a UNIX system and Linux was quite a cryptic thing…

First some additional drivers had to be installed to get MP3 to play. However Internet access was possible with cable but the system failed in recognizing the WLAN.

Here is my system:
HP Compaq nc4000
OpenSuse 11.2 (i586)
KDE 4.3.1 “release 6”
Wireless Network
Atheros AR5212

I have looked through some posts but must admit, that I did not understand much of that. I Am willing to learn, however I do not see myself compiling some drivers. If you could tell me which URL could be used for d´loading or installing via Yest, that would be fine for me.

If more sophisticated solutions, than I will have to ask my student to do it for me, but he should learn German and learn more about German lifestile in German Bars… :wink:

Thnx in advance
