Could someone please review and advise what I did wrong, and how to complete the installation?

Thank you.
Hi and welcome to the Forum
Unfortunately you have arrived at the wrong one, you need to be over at https://forums.opensuse.org same username and password. Post in the wireless subforum there and select Tumbleweed as the thread prefix.
