Wi-Fi doesn;t work on Suse 9.3

I set up my Wi-Fi in Suse 9.3 and had thought that it was all ready to go. Now it acts like it isn't there. I can't seem to id it correctly, any siggestions on how to id it and maybe where to find drivers?? I am not sure what commands to use to see if it is there yet... KWiFimanager also did not autodetect it either... however I am using Gnome to run it...

Which wireless card are you using? Did you recently install suse? I had the same problem with my netgear card. Try installing the "Wireless card drivers" in Yast. That should fix your problem....if not ....another thing i did was reinstall suse but this time I had a hard line to my router and my w.card as well, At the point when suse is auto updating it picked up my card and loaded the drivers automatically.....hope this helps.....good luck
