It looks like the card came with own module "ipw2200" which is in the
/lib/modules/. In fact I get the following:

mauede@linux:~> lsmod
ipw2200 142088 0

This module is known to YAST as well.
We get an IP address but still we cannot connect:

mauede@linux:~> /sbin/ifconfig
eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:12:F0:8D:40:71

Can someone help?
