http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi there, I have not used Linux since university and I finally got fed up with windows, so I installed Opensuse 11.2 on my Dell D430. Changed the wireless adapter to an intel one and everything work, except the Broadcom ethernet 5257 Adapter. I tried everything with my limited knowledge, using the bnx2 module instad, blacklisting tg3 etc but to no avail... no eth0 In yast the pci card shows up. Here some readouts.. Please help. This is becoming a nightmare.
