I've been using Suse for many years but with my upgrade to 11.3 wireless stopped working. I have an HP Pavilion laptop (dv6000)running Suse 11.3 (new installation) and NetworkManager has the wireless tab grayed out and I can't add a wireless device. I had wireless working on Suse 11.2 on this laptop. I made sure the wireless switch is on.
I installed the firmware and rebooted
Then I loaded it with:
After running dmesg I see the following snippet
