Hi there, I’ve just registered on this forum to ask you how you’ve done this.
I’m a very new user with openSUSE, have just installed openSUSE 12.1 on my desktop this morning. I’ve got the same PCI wireless card as you, TP-LINK TL-WN851ND (Atheros AR9287 chipset) and it’s not picked up by the OS at all.
I’m now using my laptop to get online and reading SDB articles. So far, SDB:Wireless article said Atheros drivers aren’t supported whilst MadWifi says otherwise (although TL-WN851ND wasn’t listed in it’s compatible list). Then, I came across your thread and you siad you’ve got it working!
So, please could you give me some help installing the wireless card? Atm, on System Settings -> Network Connections -> except Wired and VPN, everything else is faded. When I went into yaST2, it says it detects it and is “unconfigured”.
If you need any further info on this, please let me know. I read somewhere that a wired connection should be used for the very first time so the OS could update itself and so on but in my case, it’s kind of impossible.
