I am trying to get a USB wireless device to work on my desktop computer running OpenSUSE 11.1.
Here is what I have gathered after working through the sticky on getting my wireless to work:
In Yast Hardware Info:
Note in boot log:
Failed services in runlevel 5: network
When I go into Yast/Network Devices/Network Settings, I can add a setting for this device but if I quit out of Yast and go in again the setting is no longer listed. What should I do next? Thanks.
In part you are fighting a loosing battle because 11.1 support has ended.
And I can’t really find any useful info on that… bda_8189
You may need to get a device that actually works:
USB Wireless Device that works OOTB?
And upgrade to the latest release

The 0x0bda:0x8189 device is an RTL8187B, and it is as close to an out-of-the-box
USB wireless device. It does not need any external firmware and has been stable
for a long time, but not as long as 11.1.
I agree that you should update to 11.4 or 11.3. Once you do that and configure
your wireless, that device will work unless it is broken.
Here are the instructions to upgrade to 11.4
