Trying to get USB Zonet ZEW2500P(04) working No joy.

I can’t get this thing to work. I have tried setting it up from YAST but no joy so far an I am clueless.
The device is a Zonet ZEW2500P(04) USB wireless interface.

From the sticky “My wireless doesn’t work - a primer on what I should do next”

Where do go from here?

I have tried the rt2500 module too. same results.

Trying to figure out how I posted this in this forum? I guess too many tabs open and I picked the wrong one. Could hte mods please move it to wireless?
