thank you for your reply. I solved it meanwhile, see:

As you are using openSuSE 10.2 I am in doubt whether they updated that to iwlwifi instead of ipw3945 already, this only happened in openSuSE 10.3 alpha7.

If you care, we can exchange experiences with our mutual hardware, you can find me ( and others as well ) at or various bugzillas ( novell, redhat, bughost )
