we are aware of some problems with wireless cards based on the Atheros 
chipset and they will be fixed in a future release of DriverLoader.

For the suspend problem, as a workaround, please try to use the 
'dldrstop' command in a root shell before you suspend the laptop and 
then use the 'ifup <iface>' command when you resume it. <iface> in the 
previous command should be replaced by the name of the wireless 
interface which is probably probably 'wlan0' since you are using SuSE.
