When I was using ubuntu i used to add the cd to software sources and install a package called bcmwl* and the wireless would work immediately. Now on Opensuse the wireless is not working and as a regular user I am not sure what to do exactly ..
I typed dmesg at terminal and i got a long file with "Broadcom 4312 WLAN found" but i am unable to find my network or connect. Please help

how did you set up the machine? what have you tried to configure the wireless? can you post the result of iwlist scanning? – phunehehe Oct 5 '10 at 3:57
