Having problems with Wi-Fi on openSUSE

I have installed openSUSE. The hardwire connection works, but the wifi does not. Suggestions?

Login as root and try the below steps:...

Login as root and try the below steps:
Open a terminal > hwinfo -wlan (remember, without this particular HW -wlan doesn't work)
Now observe the chipset no from the output and it shows like 'bcm43xx' or whatever it will for ur case, for eg.
usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware
Now the driver will install & reboot OpenSuSE
Hope it will work for u also, as I got the solution for my own and it worked for me.
For step by step procedure, please look here:
