I tried the OpenSuSE distro, installed it to a partition, but could not get wifi to connect, though it doe see my router, no matter what. Perhaps I am using the wrong kind of password (wep)?
I am a licensed ham radio nut, and SuSE has a ton of ham software built in, thus my interest.
Thanks in advance!
The beauty of linux though is this: find the HAM radio programs you want and install them in another distro.

If you don't have another wifi card to try....search the web for your [specific card] and "Open SuSE", i.e. "Intel 2100 Open SuSE" and see if there are some steps needed to load a driver.
Check which card you have installed with one of these commands 'lspci' or 'lshw' (or open the machine and check).
