Broadcom Wireless not working Suse 11.3
I've been using Suse for many years but with my upgrade to 11.3 wireless stopped working. I have an HP Pavilion laptop (dv6000)running Suse 11.3 (new installation) and NetworkManager has the wireless tab grayed out and I can't add a wireless device. I had wireless working on Suse 11.2 on this laptop. I made sure the wireless switch is on.
I installed the firmware and rebooted
Then I loaded it with:
After running dmesg I see the following snippet

There is no blacklist file
I've spent many hours trolling forums and looking for the answers before posting but nothing I've tried has worked so far. Any help would be much appreciated. it's a bit frustrating.
Thank you in advance.
