Start by showing us the output of...
Code:
/usr/sbin/hwinfo --wlan
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig
Are you using NetworkManager or wicked to manage your network? The former uses it's own GUI with an icon/widget in the system tray. The latter is used more for desktops with fixed network environments and is configured via YaST > System Network Settings.

You should also check to see if the wifi is blocked for some reason. For that make sure 'rfkill' is installed first, then do
Code:
/usr/sbin/rfkill list

My problem has solved. My wifi driver was blacklisted. I used
Code:
sudo mkinitrd
and rebooted pc. Then wifi started to work. Thanks for replying.
