Wireless network card not working with Suse 10.2

Hey I just loaded Suse 10.2. It went great but my wireless card does not work. Internet works when I am wired but not with the wireless.

My wireless card is listed in Yast as HP Company BCM4306803.11 b/g wireless LAN Controller.

I tried both Automatic setup and static Address setup.

I tried PC Linux Live CD on it in the past and the wireless card did not work for that either.

I just installed linux to take this laptop with me to Ohio linuxfest.

Thanks for any help MJBB
