Problems connecting to AP after reinstalling linux and driver

hi

is your ap in the scan results? (wrong essid? try 'any')
can you connect with another driver? (orinoco)
did you try to start the device manually? (what does the suse-script do
with your settings?)
what causes the "wlan0 unsupported ioctl(0x89f1)"? (which command
fails?)
checked the ap settings?
tried another irq?
...

regards,
peter
