Wireless setup help WUSB54GSC OpenSUSE 10.2


Hello all,

I'm having trouble setting up my wireless once again on my new fresh install of openSuse 10.2. I could use some help as i'm a bit of a newbie with setting up wireless on linux. I'm using a Linksys WUSB54GSC USB adapter... when i call lsusb, the adapater is recognized as the following...

Bus 005 Device 003: ID 13b1:0026 Linksys

So it sees it there, unfortunaly the way i set it up in Suse 10.1 doesnt work... i guess there were some big changes in this area for 10.2. Help would be appreciated, i really dont know what i could do next. I'm not sure if i need to go with ndiswrapper since its recognized, plus i dont believe it comes with this version of suse. Correct me if i'm wrong.

The chipset for this is Broadcom i believe.

Thanks in advance.

In my experience, if you have a Broadcom device you should definitely use ndiswrapper. I personally had no liuck at all getting my Broadcom wireless card working on my old Compaq, but ndiswrapper works great on Slackware with a kernel recompile to support the required 8K stack size.
