it is quite possible that the configuration of the ethernet interface or 
the wireless interface is wrong. Please take a look at your settings in 

There is an option with YaST to set the default route to the wireless 
interface, you should make sure that you have set this option. This 
option is probably set because it seems that 'ifup' tries to set the 
default route to the wireless interface and fails for an unknown reason.
