NETGEAR WG121 Adapter on Suse 9.2

I have so many problems with this adapter on SuSe Linux 9.2 Pro. I have tried ndiswrapper and when I type ndiswrapper -l it says "hardware NOT present" and whenever I try to do a iwconfig command it just says that wlan0 does not exist. I tried driverloader but I couldnt find the right file to choose in dldrconfig. The system sees my Netgear adapter under unknown as Netgear unclasified device. I know some people have got this working in Mandrake, but can anyone who got it working in SuSe please give me some step by step instructions.

OK, now I managed to get it working by continuously trying ndiswrapper and the lights are on, but I still cant connect to the internet. Is there some kind of configuration part I haven't doen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Unhappy Hmm...

Also got problems with Netgear peripherals...
One would think that all devices are similar in overall design, as all components are made in Taiwan, but no way!
