I installed SuSE 11 RC1 and everything except wireless works.
I have a ThinkPad T60 laptop with 11abg wireless card which works with
my default distro mepis 7.01 and wireless works "right out of the box".

This is what I tried:

yast 2 -- Network services: No wireless shown
Network Devices: No wireless shown
Network Settings: AR5212 802.11 abg -- NIC not configured
KnetworkManager shows: eth0 (ethernet) (no carrier) I don't have it connected
ath0 shown on mepis, atheros wireless

# iwconfig -- Listed below from mepis, a working wireless:

"ath0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"linksys" Nickname:"default"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: 00:1A:70:6E:4C:4E Bit Rate:48 Mb/s Tx-Power:8 dBm Sensitivity=1/1 Retry:off RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Encryption key:off
Power Management:off
Link Quality=36/70 Signal level=-62 dBm Noise level=-98 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0"

1 - How do I config my NIC in yast 2 network settings?
2 - How do I add "ath0" using iwconfig?

I am impressed with 11 RC1, it will be great if I can get wireless to work.
