Exclamation Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN MiniCard on OpenSuse 11.4



I'm having problems with wifi on my Dell Inspiron 1501.
According to the specifications, it has a "Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN MiniCard".
I could not activate the device.
I have installed openSUSE 11.4 with GNOME.
I hope I can help with the accurate solution.

Thanks for the suggestion, but for now, it's not my choice. I'll remember this distro for testing.

I'll try the other alternative site that posted, and post the results.
