Hi
Is the kernel-firmware package installed? Is this a laptop by chance
(does it run windows), if so not a wireless hardware/Fn button switch?

Hi
Run the command;


zypper in kernel-firmware


Can I also see the output from;


/sbin/lspci -nnk |grep Network -A3


I also see;


I/O ports at d000 [disabled] [size=256]

No BIOS setting(s) to reset the interrupts or try a different PCI slot?

Also browse the output from dmesg or journalctl -x to see if anything
jumps out.
