http://forums.opensuse.org – Wireless not working, here is where I have gotten so far... Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller I downloaded the firmware and believe it is in place iwconfig results: IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"czechmate" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key:908C-EA3B-7E6D-0126-EE50-1D2F-16 Power Management:off Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0 Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0 Thats my router, but it appears theres no signal...

Finally, under Network Devices I have the wireless LAN controller to start at boot. I rebooted the computer and cannot establish a wireless connection. I am very new to Linux, and am not sure I have set up everything completely to get the wireless to work. Should I try the 4306 fix suggested in the first reply here: My wireless doesn't work - a primer on what I should do next - openSUSE Forums ? Or is there a more straightforward solution before I try that? Thanks for your help. (Distributions)
