    Default No network in connection Opensuse 11.1 after Installation

    I知 a window XP user and I知 attempting to cross over to OpenSuse 11.1 and I wondered if you guys could help. I reset my D-Link ERB-2310 rougher and installed OpenSuse 11.1 on a new ST380811AS Seagate hard drive but, I got no internet connection. I attempted to deploy NetworkManager but, I got an error that said that there is no network. The router relays the old DNS protocol, IPv4 so, I disabled IPv6 in FireFox and any where else I saw IPv6. A lot of software installations will detect and use an DHCP automatically. It would be great if you guys could get me connected with OpenSuse 11.1.

    When you installed suse, when it got to the network detction part and connected to the internet to get updates and latest release notes, was there a failure?
    If not, there's some sort of problem with the network card.
    Go to Yast>network Devices>network settings, use 'traditional ifup' settings and tell it to use dhcp.
    You can also then set gateway and dns addresses to the router address in case the dhcp isn't passing the values to the client.
    If this doesn't work, give a fixed ipaddress with the gateway and dns set to the router.

    If the network card is installed/recognised then you need to go to
    Yast>Network Device>Network Settings and configure from there, you need it
    set to start on boot (if that is what you want) here you can set wether it
    is DHCP or static etc.

    Don`t forget the default gateway and DNS.if needed.

    My installation came on a DVD I Bought from On-Disk and I致e had a few error messages when the installation tries to update, now. In network settings it has my network card denoted as 88E8001 GIGABYTE ETHERNET CONTROLLER DHCP. When I went to 摘dit I checked Use Static IP Address and there where three fields to enter. The first field was IP Address I entered the router痴 default Static IP address, 192.168.0.1 and under Hostname I entered DLINK EBR-2310. Then, I enter the Subnet Mask: 225.225.225.0 but I got the error message 哲o Valid Net mask or Prefix length.

    The Ethernet is onboard and Opensuse dose recognize it, I知 sure.
    Could you give me an example of the DNS format?

    In the Yast config if you want a static address then the first Ip address
    will be the address for your machine which should not be 192.168.0.1 ( this
    is the address of the router) choose another one like 192.168.0.2

    Subnet should be something like 225.255.255.0 and Hostname should be
    anything you want to call the machine so it will be recognised by that name
    on the LAN.

    Under Hostname/dns you can enter the same hostname as before if it has not
    already changed and for the DNS you can either use the DNS from your ISP or
    you could use the ones from OpenDNS:

    http://www.opendns.com/

    Which are:

    208.67.222.222

    208.67.220.220

    Have a look at that site it is very good and if you want to register you get
    a control panel and can monitor all your machines no matter where they are.

    Next is the routing, in here you need to put the IP of your router as
    gateway ( if your router is the next in line from your computer to the net )
