Other thoughts. I've installed SUSE on 2 laptops.
On one the wireless worked "out of the box" after I had downloaded the
ACX100 driver from Update.
On the other I used ndiswrapper. I encountered a problem because YAST
had already identified the card, and trying to enter the ndiswrapper
information into the pre-existing YAST entry failed to work. As far as
I can remember, I succeeded by deleting the pre-existing entry, then
loading the ndiswrapper driver, then using YAST to pick up the "new"
ndiswrapper connection.

(This doesn't sound very technical, because I'm not.   :-)
