What did you recompile the kernel with then?

Is there a wireless network "wizard", and if so have you found it and tried to use it?
Or is the problem much more basic than that, and OpenSUSE10 simply doesn't recognise your wireless network card.
- Have you checked the hardware compatibility guide for your distro to see if your network card is listed?
- Have you tried to look to see if there is even a Linux driver for your network card?
I didnt think the kernels got complied inthe first place as I dont have gcc thus tried to get that but not working...I was trying to get PAL2.0 a Purdue University wireless network free for Purdue students..
Hardwrae checked network card checked..I am also not able to detect vpn client require for pal2.0 The pUrdue linux group uses ubuntu and there webpage is not much help
Also install 'kernel-source', 'make' and 'gcc' packages with YaST2.
Hope this helps
The easiest way to use your wireless card on OpenSUSE, (assuming that you're using the KDE desktop environment), would be to install knetworkmanager. Knetworkmanager does almost everything for you, and you can use wifi just as easily as you would in windows.
Also, make sure you have the proper drivers for your card installed.
