http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi, I just installed OpenSUSE 11.2 64 bit on my new Dell Studio 1557 laptop (with i7), which has a Dell 1520 wireless card. I checked Dell's site, they only have Windows drivers. So how can I get appropriate driver for Linux ? There is that comment regarding wireless on Dell Studio: "Wireless modules (b43 and wl) did not install automatically. Installed using Yast". Is that relevant ? I tried to search packages with b43 and wl, it showed lots and lots of them, many with Broadcom 43xx series, some - with others. Can someone help how to resolve it ? I can only use wireless LAN at my workplace. New to Linux. Please help ! TIA, Oleg. (Distributions)
