Hi Joe,

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

I have same problem with AR-5212. Wifi driver ath5k doesn't work. You
have 2 choice for this kind problem :

1. Manually install madwifi driver from tar.gz (, with
standar ./configure, make and make install. You must have gcc, make
and kernel-source for this

2. Marek Stopka has built madwifi driver for openSUSE. Please take a
look here :

I choose the first option and my AR-5212 worked flawlessly.
