Seems like that card has a broadcom chipset (listing of cardbus version on http://linux-wless.passys.nl/query_p...dname=Linksys), so see http://bcm43xx.berlios.de/ for the driver info.

Or another method here: http://dossy.org/archives/000110.html

ndiswrapper -i BCMWL5.inf
bcmw15 driver installed

ndiswrapper -l
bcmw15 driver installed

then i used yast n configured my wireless connection with option User Controlled with NetworkManager , Device name: wlan0, Device Type Wireless n used static ip 192.168.2.23 n last ESSID 'Orbit'.
But my wireless connection didnt start . dont know wat to do should i start something or do some other settings.

Hello Capricorn80, I'm about to start the same process with the wmp54gs and suse 10.1. I was wondering if you ever got it working?
