wireless connection

Hi,

It is my first attempt to configure and start using openSUSE. the problem is - there is no wireless connection. this is what i get at the command line after

sudo lsusb:

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 046d:c52b Logitech, Inc. Unifying Receiver
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 046d:c52b Logitech, Inc. Unifying Receiver

how do i continue from here?

thanks, and have a nice day.

As this list contains no wireless devices, the only thing we can conclude is
that you do not have a USB wireless device, it is not plugged in, or it is
hopelessly broken.

As it is likely that you have a PCI device, please post the output of


sudo /sbin/lspci -nn'

For future reference, wireless questions are usually in the wireless forum.
There are some stickies there that also have useful information.

And did you go to the Wireless forum (where you should have started this in any case) and read the stickies there as @lwfinger advised you to do?
