Hello,

I have installed openSUSE 12.3 / KDE on my Medion Notebook
MD41300 with an INTEL Pentium 4 CPU 3.0 GHz and 1 Gb memory and 
everything works oke, including wireless.
 
I am testing openSUSE 13.1 RC2 with this older laptop. Up to now it has 
worked very well through all the releases upto openSUSE/KDE 12.3.

On the moment I test the live openSUSE/KDE 13.1 RC2 via an usb-stick. 
The system comes up nicely but the wireless network card does not work 
and generates the following lines in dmesg output:

[ 48.675564] enp3s6: resetting device...
[ 48.675587] enp3s6: uploading firmware...
[ 48.855166] prism54: request_firmware() failed for 'isl3890'
[ 48.855175] enp3s6: could not upload firmware ('isl3890')
[ 48.855179] enp3s6: islpci_reset: failure

While I followed URL:
         http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/p54
to activate driver p54pci, the same as I had done for all the previous 
releases.

The wireless networkcard, according to command "/sbin/lspci"
Networkcontroller: "Intersil Corporation ISL3890 [Prism GT/Prism
Duette] /ISL3886 [Prism Javelin/Prism Xbow] (rev 01)".

The kernel version is according to command uname -r :
     3.11.6-3-default

I checked on the openSUSE forum wih Larry Finger, in thread:

http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/install-boot-login/413006-please-help-enabling-p54-wireless-firmware-kernel-according-url-http-wireless-kernel-org-en-users-drivers-p54-2.html

and he noticed that my wireless get the wrong naming "enp3s6" in stead 
of  "wlp..."
He proposed a way to still test my wireless card by adding an entry, 
70-persistent-net.rules (with the mac address of my wireless card and 
wlan0 in it) to /etc/udev/rules.d/

I have added that line to /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and 
deactivated prism54 driver and activated p54pci driver (via modprobe)
and the wireless device started working correctly.

The problem is now why assigned the openSUSE 13.1 RC2 live USB-stick 
initialy the  wrong naming  enp3s6    to my Wireless Network card.

Userspace uses the netdev devtype for stuff like device naming and type
detection.  Be nice and set it.  Remove the pointless #if/#endif around
SET_NETDEV_DEV too.

Should this be sent to Stable?
