Muwahahahah... usb wireless device. Your are insane

Um, try installing ndiswrapper. Suse comes with it.
Put all the drivers and stuff for windows in a folder in your home folder..
then try...
ndiswrapper -i (path to driver)yourdriver.inf
Then... ndiswrapper -l
That's an L
If it pops up and says (yourcard)... "Present"
It means the driver will work, if not, ignore the rest of this...

Proviced you have a driver that says its working, or the power light came up and stuff when you loaded that. Go into yast, network devices. Delete eth0 or whatever your landline connection is. Then, make a new configuration, for device "Other" meaning you'll do it manually. Where it says "Driver" or "Driver Module" type ndiswrapper. And it'll auto-load the wireless card upon boot as long as you remember to plug the thing in! Then click through all the menu's and set up the ESSID and security key and anything else you need.

also your last paragraph says go into yast and then network devices i skipped the middle part to see if even the network devices thing was in yast but its not i can't find it there must be something else i go to in yast to get to network devices.

/me loads yast, looks around in it for a moment...

Lets see. The very first thing that pops up when you run yast is is a picture of the suse box with "INSTALL AND REMOVE SOFTWARE"

So finding how to install ndiswrapper really shouldnt be much of a mystery...
And the words "Network Devices" are written about 3 inches to the left and 1 inch down on the part that lets you choose what part of yast you want to use...
