Open Suse11 Ralinkusb and or Atheros wireless capability needed please


I am glad to depart company with MS Vista et al, however, as someone else said, at least the wifi worked.

I need some detailed instructions for how to download, install, and use the wireless capability of a Ralink USB or an installed Atheros card. I would give you the exact descriptions, but can't seem to figure out how to get a listing using Linux.

I am using Open Suse11, kernal 2.6.25.18-0.2-pae

Processor = AMD64 (Turion 64x2 Mobile Technology TL60)

Router = Netgear "WGR614v7"

I have been trying for a couple days now and have not found a way that will work. Some of the "newbie" instructions start out good, but when stating which code to use and when, they often revert to geek speak and leave us hanging.

The help I receive here will be very much appreciated by others also.
