My wireless isn't working at all. I've searched the forums for the chipset, but have had no luck.

Which drivers should I be using?

Running openSUSE 10.3,

I'm quite new to Linux.

It seems quite a few distros have taken early just about working versions of the rt2x00 project drivers and started shipping them. The end result is lots of users complaining that the drivers don't work for them as at any given point in time they tended to have bugs that affect certain hardware.

One possible option would be to disable the rt2500usb driver that is part of rt2x00 and build the legacy driver (which is usually easy to build standalone whereas building a newer version of rt2x00 can result in you needing to track down a version of the mac80211 stack that is compatible with both the newer rt2x00 and a non latest kernel). Alternatively if the extra features of rt2x00 matter to you and you feel comfortable editing kernel configurations you could consider switching to the rt2x00 git kernel tree.
