Question SuSE 9.2 & Lynksys Wireless PCMCIA

I've installed the professional version of SuSE 9.2 on my laptop. It recognises my wireless network card but I cannot seem to get it to talk to my wireless router. Do I need to activate it or get another driver from Lynksys?

Any help would be appreciated.

Its a wpc4g but I've also tried a US Robotics 54g and I can't even get that to power on!! The built in ethernet card works perfectly when connected with rj45 and as far as I can see in yast everthing is set up properly. Do I need a new driver? Please help!
