wireless help please


i just installed suse 10.1 on my hp laptop and it doesn't recognize that i have a wireless card. i'm pretty sure that i have a broadcom as its still the original card that came with the laptop. i would apreciate any help anyone could give me.

i have tried to open a terminal in my root "sudo bash" and then with iwconfig it says that there are no wireless extensions all across the board.

Hi,

Probably you did not insert the good module in the kernel.

Identify your wireless card, look at the module it needs, do a
# lsmod
and check the module needed is inserted in the kernel.

If it's not (as it's probably the case), do a:
# insmod module_name

Enjoy,

G
