  • Use the information here :

    to confirm that your wireless LAN hardware is known to work.
    Then use openSuSe's yast2 system configuration program to create the wireless connection.

    If your hardware is not listed, you should investigate purchasing a Linux compatible wireless adapter to replace your existing adapter if you are sure you want to create a wireless connection using openSuSe Linux.
    There are many cheap, readily available usb wireless adapters that work perfectly with Linux available in stores and on ebay.

    I recommend you use an encryption key to create the connection so that you don't provide your neighbourhood with free wireless internet access. A WPA2 encryption key using AES is currently one of the strongest methods.
    You can learn how to set an encryption key by reading the manual that came with your wireless router.

  • Are you running openSUSE in a desktop/laptop pc?
    What version?

    please, run this command
    /sbin/lspci
    and post the result

    It will tell us the name of your wireless card... something like this
    Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4328 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 03)

    Maybe you can use ndiswrapper to use the microsoft windows driver in Linux
