Suse won't recognize wireless card
 
I just installed Suse Linux 10.1 and it's not recognizing my wireless card. I don't even know where to start to fix this. Any ideas? Thanks.

To start, you should find out what chipset your wireless card uses. If you don't know or can't find out, post the model of your wireless card.

it's an Atheros AR5004G, can't find the chipset, here's a link to product details:

I also found a driver here:

But don't know how to go about installing it. Let me know if more info is needed, and thanks for the quick response.

holy crap, finally. I've been trying to get my Linux installed and everything running right all day (Namely the madwifi driver). But it's mostly sorted out now and I can't peel myself away. "ooo, what is this? What does that do? Crap, what happened? oh, dur. WHAT, that's so friggin sick I can barely move." I'm excited. I need to buy something.

Thanks for the help.
