unable to connect to wireless access when running opensuse11 in live mode

[/SIZE] Hello everyone, hope someone can help with my problem. I am running opensuse11.1 in live cd mode but I am unable to access the internet. I have a SMC router wireless configured but to be honest I don't have any idea how to configure it when I am trying to access the internet, perhaps it will not work when running suse 11.1 in live mode. I would greatly appreciate some help but would like to say that at age 69 a reasonably lucid explanation could be followed quite easily. Your help would be greatly appreciated, thank you. I am running on a laptop intel pentium dual core, 3 gig of ram, 500 gig hard drive.

Hi Pat,

Does your laptop recognize the wireless card that is installed in it? Does your router have internet access? Does your router work with any other computers? Do you know what kind of wireless adapter is in your laptop? The adapter may be built-in and not plugged in on the outside. Do you have the installation CD that came with the wireless adapter in your laptop? If it's built-in, probably not. And are running a live CD. Does your laptop run MS Windows from it's hard drive?
