Ok, so I installed Suse 11.0 32bit on an old laptop. I couldnt get the wireless to work so I found the thread here and downloaded and installed the firmware for my broadcom device. Here are the results of running the command ‘/usr/sbin/iwconfig’
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
wmaster0 no wireless extensions.
wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:""
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Retry min limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr=2352 B
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
Next running the command ‘sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan’ yeilds these results:
lo Interface doesn’t support scanning.
eth0 Interface doesn’t support scanning.
wmaster0 Interface doesn’t support scanning.
wlan0 No scan results
Any help would be greatly appreciated
