openSUSE 10.3, Wireless NIC problems

Hey, I just installed openSUSE 10.3 the other day, the only thing i seem to have a problem with is my Linksys WPC54GS Wireless NIC...

The OS apparently sees it, but will not connect to my wireless network... this is a problem for me...

The other bit of info is it doesn't even see any wireless networks....

Any help?

Question Still searching?

Did you find an answer to your question?

If not, consider some of the following...

Which driver is Suse trying to use? Do you need firmware for it? (My pcmcia wireless card does when using linux driver bcm43xx)

Have you tried ndiswrapper? This is often the easiest way to configure a wireless card in linux. It uses Windows drivers to get it up and running.

What are the results of iwconfig? If you can see networks from the command line, but not from your desktop, it may be a software related issue rather than hardware.

What do you mean by, "The OS apparently sees it"?
How are you trying to connect?

All of this information and more will help anyone trying to answer your question help you.
