I don't understand what you want. Could you provide some examples, please?

Since the install stage does not support wireless cards, my suggestion was to add an applet on the desktop so the user can set up the wireless card without having to restart Yast, entering the password - then Yast -->Network Devices-->Network Settings again.

Over the last several years we've had a lot of complaints from new users on the forum about the wireless card NOT working after installation.

I propose adding an icon on the Desktop folder to autconfigure the wireless card.

The user can use a single-click on the icon (representing the wireless card) to configure the wireless card withought having to open Yast. There appears to be too many clicks of the mouse to configure a single wireless card.

I don't understand how Ubuntu is able to do it during the install process. However, openSUSE install cannot. Can we improve this process?
