hi. i'm facing the problem too. Just install suse 9.2 profession from CD. I am using a linksys wusb54GP and it does not recognise it either. a friend tried using a pmcia card (older linksys 11B) and had no problems although it seems that he had to re-start suse before it 'sees' it.
however, when i plug it directly into the linksys router via network cable, i had no problems. did not even have to use YOU to configure. truly plug and play
if anythere can help.. it'll be great. Thanks!
