    Exclamation can not configure my internet connection openSuse 11

    Hello all I am a newbie at Linux OS and i can't configure
    my internet connection settings at linux openSUSE11(ip, dns etc.)
    I have a cable connection (no router- modem!!! ) and i was wondering if anyone could tell me step by step what i should do.

    ps meanwhile i have also windows xp and i have no problem connecting from windows that means that i don't have any problem with my connection.

    thank you in advance

    Assuming your modem/router doesn't do DHCP (unlikely, but oh well) you
    can get the settings from your windows system (Start: Run: cmd then run
    `ipconfig /all`) and then put those settings in your Linux system. Run
    `sudo /sbin/yast` and then go to Network Devices: Network Card, and
    configure your network the same way you have windows setup.
    Specifically make sure you put in your Gateway (modem/router IP
    probably), DNS (whatever your ISP gives you, but may also be your
    modem/router IP), IP address and subnet (specific to the computer).

    Good luck.

    Here's a few pics to help:
    HowTo Configure a network card in Suse/openSUSE 10, 11 for LAN and Internet Access.

    For the settings recommended by ab@novell.com, check Pics 1, 2, 5, 6, 7 and 8.

    you also haven't said if you are using gnome or kde. if gnome, then just right-click on the network manager applet on the system tray. and go to 'edit connections'. there 'add' a new connection and feed in all the information in the various tabs.

    Hi All,

    I have similar problem - cannot connect to internet with SUSE 11.2 KDE while Windows can. I transfered all network parameters from windows. Where else could be the problem? :-/

    Please clarify:

    1. Are you using a wired or a wireless connection
    2. What device/method are you using to connect to the internet?
    3. Are you using a network manager or are you using yast ifup method?
    4. What network parameters did you transfer over from windows?

    Post Re: can not configure my internet connection openSuse 11

    1. I use wired LAN connection.
    2. eth0
    3. yast ifup
    4. I transfered these parameters from windows:
    IP: 192.168.0.155
    Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Default gateway: 192.168.0.1
    Prefered DNS: 195.14.167.54
    Alternate DNS: 213.197.150.130

    Other parameters and ticks I placed according snapshots from here: Configure a network card in Suse/openSUSE 11.x for Internet Access & wifi.
    Firewal: External Zone.

    Thanx

    That looks quite correct. To look deeper, please run these test commands in a console window and paste the results back here:

    • /usr/sbin/hwinfo --network
    • /sbin/route
    • cat /etc/resolv.conf
    • su -c ifconfig
    • ping -c 2 192.168.0.1
    • ping -c 2 195.14.167.54
    • ping -c 2 8.8.8.8


    When you paste back, try to place the results between code tags, using the # button in the "go advanced" editor.
