Are you using WEP with your access-point?
Does your access-point broadcast it's ESSID?
What does "iwlist scan" say?

If you're using WEP, remember the key.
Start "YaSt" -> goto "Network" -> goto "Network card".
Enter the requiered data like "ESSID" (the "Name" of
your Access-Point) and the WEP key.
Save the data and leave YaST.
Then restart your machine or use "rcnetwork restart"
as user root.

Looks good...
