    Default How do I configure my cable internet connection?

    Hi All,

    I brand new to Linux and need to set up my cable internet connection with fixed IP in SUSE. Can someone walk me through the process please?

    Cheers and many thanks.

    The Seagull.

    You only need to fill ip address and check gateway in opensuse.
    example:

    #vi /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0

    BOOTPROTO='static'
    BROADCAST=''
    ETHTOOL_OPTIONS=''
    IPADDR='211.xxx.xxx.xxx'
    MTU=''
    NAME='Intel PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapter'

    Show your gateway

    #route -n

    An easier way of doing the above is
    YaST->Network Devices->Network Settings

    Select your network card and configure it to work by DHCP

    Optionally, under the routing tab enter the gateway

    Click Finish

    As he wants a fixed IP address he should uncheck by DHCP and enter IP address and netmask. But you are right, YaST is easy and adequate to use for this.

    Oops my bad

    An easier way of doing the above is
    YaST->Network Devices->Network Settings

    Click Statically assigned IP address and enter the details in the boxes

    Under the routing tab enter the gateway, which is the router IP

    Click Finish
