Any hints or tips are welcome at this point.
Unsure if you didn't see my 6/22  09:22 suggestion (or whatever),.so, once more.
Open Suse 11.0  forums incidate a problem with madwifi.  They further indicate successful
use of " wicd " to resolve the problem.  
If interested in trying wicd, then Google ->    wicd-1.4.2-rm.0.noarch.rpm   <-
this takes you to the download site.

I've been using wicd for six months, no issues, works good.  If you decide to try
it be sure to pay close attention to setting the preferences correctly.
