I just successfully completed a new dual-boot installation of OpenSUSE 11 along with Vista x64. The install went great and dual-booting works fine. But I cannot get a connection to the internet, no matter what I try. Granted, I'm a bit lost in this new environment, but I have managed to stumble onto various tools that would seem to address the issue. Unfortunately, no luck.
I have cable modem service from Time Warner, but there is only DSL, ISDN, and Modem icons in the Yast "network devices" section. Also, I'm going through a Linksys WRT56G router. All other computers are connecting fine, and Vista connects fine when I boot to it on this machine.
When I choose "Network Settings" in Yast, it shows my RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller, but says (Not connected). I set it to use DHCP. Can anyone walk me through setting this up properly? I must be missing something. By the way, I installed the KDE 4 desktop.
