I am a bit desperate because I’ve been working for hours getting openSuse to recognize my Broadcom network card (on a Lenovo 3000 C200 laptop), and finally got it to work with ndiswrapper. (You need to know that my experience with Linux dates back only to yesterday, when Windows stopped working and I decided it was a nice opportunity to switch to something else. So I am a newbie here.)
However, now I see that my wireless network only works when the computer is plugged in. I remember I had more or less the same problem with Windows, but I was able to go somewhere and tweak the card’s parameters and its power usage. However, with openSuse I don’t know where to go to do that.
Could someone help me with that. Please be very explicit, as I’ve found some explanations but wasn’t able to understand them!
Thanks a lot,
