I have a Dell Vostro 1500 laptop with a Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller and a Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card. I just installed Debian on this laptop. How can I get wireless internet?

Unhappy installing openSUSE 11.1 on HP laptop dv6500

hi my name is amit, I need some help regarding suse installation on Hp laptop dv 6500.
I could install opensuse 11.1 on my laptop, with almost everything working fine. But I am facing problem while using "make" command and it says machine unknown. I checked the version of make there i could see that its support is undefined and "make -v" command says This program is build for x86_64_unknown_linux_gnu. the makefile which I want to run also uses /bin/sh file, I opend this sh file in editor and have searcher for "x86_64_unknown_linux_gnu" but this line is not there and instead "x86_64_suse_linux_gnu" is there. I dont know is this really a problem that I am able to use the make file? if yes please tell me how to resolve. And if there is some other problem please tell me how to proceed for the solution of this. Looking forward for ur response. Thanks in advance. Best regards Amit
