Please note that if a piece of hardware was working on a previous release than the current one, there is a pretty good chance that it will work on the most recent release. However, there is no guarantee that the current release did not somehow break the driver or configuration for that piece of hardware (for example refer to Bug 168618). Please check that the hardware continues to work as expected for the most recent release before updating the Question.png for the most recent release in the following tables.

10.2 Native kernel driver. Needs firmware however. Install bcm43xx-fwcutter from DVD or OSS-repo and run as root the included script: install_bcm43xx_firmware from the /usr/sbin directory.

10.1 Works with ndiswrapper(64bit drivers also work with ndiswrapper).

For suse 10.2 to work, the ipw-firmware package from the Non-OSS add-on CD (or non-oss repo) is required.

  • On SuSE 10.0, there could be a problem using that device in conjunction with 802.11b routers. Here a possible solution.
  • On SuSE 10.1 and 10.2, the ipw-firmware package from the Non-OSS add-on CD (or non-oss repo) is required.

  • SuSE 10.3 - Works, but there is a bug [1]. There is an upstream fix, but it hasn't made it into the regular updates. You can install the update by adding "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/driver:/wireless:/10.3/openSUSE_10.3_update/" as a software repository, then in YaST Software Management, search for ipw3945, and update your kernel module (reboot to take effect). The traditional "ifup" process is reported to work as an alternative to the GUI Network Manager. To connect to get this fix using Network Manager, you will need to turn the wireless radio on and off using the hardware switch on your computer until Network Manager finally connects (tip: turn radio off, wait until NM shows no connection icon, turn radio on, once the connecting icon appears, wait about 5-6 sec., and if no progress is made, turn radio off until no connection icon appears, repeat until connection progress is made, then wait for connection).
  • SuSE 10.1/2 - use the Extras non-oss CD disk 6 or install the packages ipw-firmware and ipw3945d from a non-oss repository. You may still have problems on some systems if the "kill switch" is turned on. (On my IBM T60, this is a little switch near the IR port, on other systems it may be an ACPI keyboard switch like Fn+F5 or something you can enable or disable in the BIOS.)
  • SuSE 10.1 - Use the wlan kernel & install the firmware upgrade. Install ipw3945d. Use traditional ifup instead of Network Manager.

Intersil ISL3890 PrismGT/Duette Question.png 22px-Tick.png 10.1 OSS x86 You need to download the firmware, version 1.0.4.3, for the ISL3890 from the following URL http://prism54.org/fullmac.html

and saved the firmware file as isl3890 (no Capitals) in the /lib/firmware/ directory. I used in KDE KMenu/System/FileManager/ FileManager-SuperUserMode to download/save the firmware.

Yast2 uses module ath_pci. Works with SuSe 10.2 after installing madwifi (tested with madwifi-0.9.2.1-0.1 and WG311-T card).

TP-Link TL-WN650G Atheros/ath_pci Question.png 22px-Tick.png Only in 10.0 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 10.3 x86, x86_64 WEP and WPA supported. For 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 the madwifi drivers are needed. If the installation of the madwifi-kmp-*.rpm package fails, get the src-package and rebuild it: rpmbuild --rebuild --target=[yourTarget] madwifi-*.src.rpm. The new packages are located at the adequate directory in /usr/src/packages/RPMS/

How do I know which chipset I have?

The chipset is what determines which driver you need, not the manufacturer of the card. Here are a number of ways to find out. All the commands should be run as root.

Try this.

hwinfo --wlan

Otherwise use this command if you have a pcmcia card or an onboard card:

lspci

Or this if you have a usb card:

lsusb

This won't output very detailed information, but it'll give you a unique hardware ID, for example 046d:c01b. Search for it with Google or another internet search engine to find out which chipset is on the device.

Ndiswrapper

If there's no native Linux driver for your card, maybe you can use a Windows driver with Ndiswrapper
