Giving more information about what you have tried (and failed) would be a big help in giving you advice.

Lacking that, let's start with the basics.

Have you tried going to the Kde or Gnome main menu (the start menu in windows), and Control Center - Yast - Network devices - Network card to try to configure wifi?
