As proposed by lwfinger, I am opening a new thread, with the details already posted in
I had a similar problem – **no WLAN since upgrading two days ago from 12.3 to 13.1. **
I did have wired connection, both via “network manager” and via “traditional”.
At first “network manager” did not work at all. After upgrading the kernel to latest 3.13 (following a tip) I got wired connection, and could also sign into the WLAN (i.e. router) and get an IP address.
Despite these positive signs, there was no actual transmission on the WLAN and could not connect to web sites.
Here are the networkmanager details:
** wireless (broken):**

Help requested!!! Thanks!
**Update: **After a frustrating attempt to get my system working properly with SUSE 13.1 (I use it to write my math papers and to manage web pages related to teaching, and it has to be a reliable system), I gave up on it. To me release 13.1 seems quite – how to say – redmondesque. So I am now safely back to SUSE 12.3. Maybe when 13.x is stable I will try it.
Thanks to the good people maintaining and improving SUSE.
