Thread: Internet doesn't work

    Default Internet doesn't work

    Hello guys,
    I am new to linux and opensuse. I have just installed the latest version on my computer(dual-boot with windows xp). The internet doesn't work. I went to the network settings, selected dhcp for ip but it doesn't get connected. Any ideas?

    What device does it list for you in the network settings.

    Open a terminal and become su and do:

    Code:
    lspci -v

    I can't figure out a way to post the output over here. I can't access to the internet or network and flash drives don't seem to work. When plug them, the light won't even come on so I think the usb controller needs drivers. Any more suggestions? I

    As best you can, try and describe your device (network card) and how you are connecting to the internet (eg; router, usb modem)?

    Are you using KDE4? If, so you may need to mount drive by clicking on icon (in Places window) from Dolphin.

    I am using Gnome. I am connected the router. I have cable internet. I have also tried to connect directly to the modem. It is an ethernet modem.

    Here's the output of the lspci -v command. I had to type all this so here it goes

    Default Re: Internet doesn't work

    Code:
    Kernel driver in use: 8139too
    Kernel modules: 8139too, 8139cp
    Known problem, two drivers claiming the same device and sometimes the wrong one is loaded.

    Kernel module configuration - openSUSE

    Try 8139cp instead of 8139too.

    If that works, blacklist the wrong driver.

    Note on helpers asking for lspci-outputs.

    Please do not ask for "lspci -v" at least in your first reply.

    You will get a lot of useless data and as most users will not use CODE-Tags for their replies, it will be hard to find the really important information.

    Another drawback of "lspci -v" is that it is missing one very important information, the PCI-ID is not displayed. Especially when you want to identify a device, you will get less valuable information with "lspci -v".

    So it's better to ask for:

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nn
    (Note, that this will also work _without_ root privileges!)

    If you want more useful information without a lot of extra data, ask for

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk
    This will give you two more lines if (a) suitable kernel module(s) is/are available and which one is actually being used at the moment.

    If you want to restrict the output to networking devices, ask for:

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nn|grep -i net
    or

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk|grep -A2 -i net
    For more than 95% of all cases, these outputs will be sufficient or even better than "lspci -v" and it will also improve the SNR.

    Thank you for your response. It didn't work. I have blacklisted and restarted the computer and opened network settings and there is an error message of "Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device is not present".
    By the way I run the lspci -v command again and this time "Kernel driver in use" line is gone. Seems like after I blacklisted 8139too, it didn't automatically pick 8139cp. Any suggestions?
