SLED networking suddenly stopped working


One day, everything was going great. There were some standard software updates that day, which I installed. The next day, NetworkManager Applet said that there were no network devices found. My Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG is showing up in the network card section of YAST, but nothing is showing up in ifconfig/iwconfig besides loopback. I keep playing with YAST settings and rebooting, but no go. Any ideas?

Welcome to LQ. Have you tried opening a console session and running
Code:
ifup eth0
which will bring up the eth0 interface and start dhcp. If that doesn't work, please post the results of running 'lspci' as well as 'ifconfig'

"ifup eth0" gives me "Interface eth0 is not available". ifconfig gives me nothing but loopback. ispci gives me "command not found". What is ispci supposed to do?

I read your post again, and I noticed that I was typing ispci and not lspci. lspci says the following about my wireless card:
