Suse 9.2 SMC2802W starting problem

Hi everyone,

I have a little problem. I have installed suse 9.2 prof and I'm trying to get my wireless SMC2802W network card working. I have downloaded the new firmware and placed it in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/, but it just doesn't work. Suse recognized the card perfectly and it boots perfectly, so that should not be the problem. The light's on the back of my pc on the networkcard doesn't shine or flash at all. What's wrong and what can I do about it?

Many thanks,
