    Did you configure it and control it with network manager? Assuming that the connection is valid, maybe it's just a DNS issue.

    1. When connected, can you ping a site successfully by IP address? eg Google servers...
    Code:
    ping 8.8.8.8
    Code:
    ping 74.125.224.72
    2. Get the output of
    Code:
    grep -i name /etc/resolv.conf
    Any name servers defined? If not, try
    Code:
    echo 8.8.8.8 > /etc/resolv.conf
    *You'll need root privileges for this one.

    Any difference?

    not that i can help you, but i think someone else can if you will please
    show us the terminal output *and* input from

    Code:
    /sbin/ifconfig -a
    ping <your-router-IP-address>
    /sbin/route -n
    ping 8.8.8.8
    nslookup forums.opensuse.org
    ip addr
    ip route
    ip -s link
    grep '^[^#]' /etc/resolv.conf
    copy/paste the in/output back to this thread using the instructions
    here: http://goo.gl/i3wnr

    additionally, tell us which desktop environment you are using and which
    method of setting up your networking you use (NetworkManager of ifup)

    oh, and last: were you ever successful with (say) firefox and then it
    changed to not working?

    openSUSE 12.1 showed internet connection was established
    That is your conclusion from something you noticed. What did you notice/see to make you come to this conclusion?

    And all the other info asked for above of course.

    Some time ago I set up the MF100's predecessor, an MF60, and I recall that it
    wouldn't play well with openSUSE until I made one single simple change in the
    networkmanager settings for the connection. Unfortunately it was too long ago
    for me to remember what that one change was, so I've posted screen shots of the
    working setup in hopes that you find them useful.


    SUSE Paste


    We've found the MF60 to be a tremendously helpful item to have on this little
    island where the DSL is often down for days at a time. When all we had was 2G
    it had trouble holding a connection for more than 45 minutes or so, but now we
    have 3G, and we recently used it continuously for a week+ after Hurricane Sandy
    without any issues.
