No wireless after upgrade

http://forums.opensuse.org – I've got an old Compaq Armada E500 laptop (850mhz PIII, 512mb RAM, 30GB HD) that I've been running OpenSUSE 11.1 w/Gnome desktop. My wireless adapter (Linksys Wireless-G, model WPC54G ver. 2 w/acx-111 chipset) worked well with this setup, but now that I've upgraded to OpenSUSE 11.2 w/KDE, I've got to start all over. I tried doing what I did before, which was to copy the firmware file into /lib/firmware/ but no dice. Any suggestions? (Distributions)
