Suddenly No Wireless Network Card

I am running SLED 11 and My Networkcard is Intel PRO/Wireless 5300. In short, it is not there anymore! I mean I was connected and everything and the next time I restarted It could not detect any wireless network. I deleted the wireless network card in hopes that the OS will automatically detect it on startup and set it right but NOPE. When I check the hardware information in YAST, it is listed there and it is also working under Windows. Any Ideas?!

You are welcome here and there may be some answers showing, but I must remind you that this is een openSUSE forum. The SLED forum is at SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) - NOVELL FORUMS

Checked there, no answer. openSUSE 11.1 and SLED 11 are nearly the same and I am fairly certain there are a lot more experts roaming around this forum.

I haven’t seen a post over in the Novell SLED networking forum? Can
you please post over there along with system details/model etc. Also the
output from uname -a.
