I posted before about getting my CD's to work, well finally I burned with alcohol 120% and it worked.

Anyway, I have a few computer in my home on a network, my main computer is connected to the internet via cable, and Im using a router for my other computer to connect to the internet right now. But I also just installed SUSE and this is my first go around with connecting to the internet (on linux), well wireless anyway. I am using KDE, so can anyone offer some advice, on how SUSE detects networks (like windows) so I can connect to it? Thank you.

Use Yast to setup your network.
What kind of wireless hardware are you using?

On openSuSE 10 I use KInternet to manage/detect the wireless connection. It's major downfall is that it doesn't remember WEP keys. If you chose to install Gnome you can use NetworkManager/NetworkManagerInfo to manage/detect other networks. NetworkManager will remember the WEP keys.

I am using Motorola WPCI810GP as the wireless card. See thats the main reason why I cant connect to my network, I do not believe it is detecting the card. Someone mentioned about ndiswrapper. But im having problems with that also.

I can try GNOME and see what happens, but if my wireless card isnt detected that wont do any good.
