    Default Mac Pro / connection problem

    Hello,

    I'm trying to put openSUSE 11.1 to Apple - Mac Pro - Tech Specs machine ...
    The OS install is okay, but when I try to access internet with Firefox, it isn't working, also when I go to "terminal/konsole" and input "ifconfig" under "Inet Address" there is 127.0.0.1 instead of "normal" ip address assigned by router ... When I connect other PC to the same port on router, they work without a problem ...

    Can you open up a browser and log in to the router interface?

    If you can't even interface with the router, your network device is not setup/configured properly.

    The Computer NIC needs setting up in Yast - Network Devices, assuming that's possible depending on it's type and the driver situation.

    Hi,

    127.0.0.1 sounds right, it's the loopback address.

    if you posted the whole of the output from ifconfig this would be clearer.

    Can you ping the IP address of your router?

    Are you trying to connect using wired or wireless?

    Regards,
    Barry.
