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

11.0 RC1 here (upgraded from Beta3 using "zypper dist-upgrade") on a
Thinkpad T42p, AR5212 802.11 abg wifi card here works beautifully with
the ath5k driver.

Looking in the YaST network card setup, the module name shown is ath5k,
device name is wlan0. ath0 is the device name on my 10.3 box running
Madwifi, so my guess is that your system thinks it's running madwifi
rather than ath5k. My 11.0 system automatically selected ath5k during
the installation of beta3 (and beta2, for that matter).

Hope this helps. If you need more info, I'd be happy to provide it.

Jim
