What kind of eternet card is it ?
I mean on board or in a PCI slot
Mostly suse find the eternet card on her own.
Anyhow use yast2>network devices to configure the eternet card
But what do you use DHCP or PPPE
What do you exactly by wireless ?
Wireless modem connected to the eternet card ?

You have to let us know what chipsets are in your cards. Run
Code:
/sbin/lspci | grep -i net
Post back the results.

Atheros cards are supported using the madwifi driver. There are instructions here for installing madwifi and setting up your connection using openSUSE.
