It can be version 2 as well. Both version 1 and version 2 (made in Taiwan) use prism54 modules. Check to see if they are loaded. Use the command ' lsmod ' to see loaded modules.

Other than that make sure no wep, wpa or mac, ip filtering is enabled.
Not a Suse or Ubuntu user so can't help there. Mostly a Redhat/Redhat clone distros user.
