DUDE!!! You just saved me HOURS of frustration. Thank you. This is an issue that many folks have been experiencing when trying to configure wireless nics with suse. My laptop has the builtin nic and the wireless card and the builtin nic always initializes first, leaving the wireless dead in the water so to speak. So now, I should be able to just disable the onboard nic so the wireless initializes and gets the routing tables updated or figure out a way to switch the order in which they initialize. Thanks again man.
Off to spread the word to others who were having problems...

The only reason why this could happen, is that you might have another network card which is trying to get an ipaddress. Only the first instance of the dhcp client will update the routing tables.
Try to do a ifdown eth1, ifdown <wireless card>, ifup <wireless card>. You could set all the network cards to start manually and the do an ifup ... everytime you boot, or you could use 'profile' to handle it; see Yast2....
