Problem connecting to sitecome 300N Wireless Router

I am a Linux newbee.
Running Suse 11.3 (Gnome) on an Acer Aspire 5310 Laptop.
Installed all the default broadcom drivers via install software.

The following I tried:
/usr/sbin/iwlist eth0 scanning
eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.

bodifee@linux-wv6l:~> /usr/sbin/iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

eth1 IEEE 802.11 Access Point: Not-Associated
Link Quality:5 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 invalid crypt:0 invalid misc:0

So card still not active i seems.
Have deleted and added wireless adapter
PLZ any tips

What's the output of
ifconfig eth1

Also, you say "Installed all the default broadcom drivers via install software" - what drivers are these, exactly? Did your install software tell you they were the right ones for your wireless card? What IS your wireless card?

I could not run ifconf1g eth1. But mysteriously solved itself.
