    Unhappy Using WiFi and Ethernet Connections

    I've been searching for a couple of hours and have not found any threads that solve my situation... hope I'm not repeating something here.

    Setup:
    Notebook with openSUSE 11.2 using KDE 4.
    Using Network Manager to manage network connection (although I've tried configuring this using ifup as well with no luck).

    I need to be able to connect to client networks via a network cable (Ethernet) and connect to the internet via my MiFi 2200 Mobile WiFi. Both cards/connections are active with the following:

    ethernet (must be set to DHCP)
    IP: 192.168.0.189
    Name Server / Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
    Domains: russNET.local

    Wireless (also set to DHCP)
    IP: 192.168.1.3
    Name Server / Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1

    I have no problem mounting drives from the client's network. But, can not reach the internet. If I disconnect the ethernet cable, the browser will immediately connect to the internet and load web pages.

    I'm assuming the ethernet connection is taking precedence over the wireless connection???

    I can't imagine that there is not a way to set this up. If Windows can do it, I'm sure openSUSE can!

    Open a terminal and post result of:

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk
    wired should just work, normally just leave the default settings of dhcp, but some folks have had to set up their dns servers manually.

    Wired should be disconnected to use wireless

    Both your device are ok and drivers in place
    wireless, wired respectively

    I've read posts about connecting pc to pc with ethernet and using wireless at the same time. I can't imagine that you could do that but can't use ethernet to DHCP network and wireless at the same time.

    Default Re: Using WiFi and Ethernet Connections

    The client's network does not have Wi-Fi or Internet access. I must connect to it using my ethernet card (eth0). I must connect to the internet to transfer files and access web pages (wlan0). On a Windows notebook, this is very easy.

    Both devices are active. But, as long as the cable is plugged into the ethernet card, I can not access the internet. As soon as I unplug the cable, I can access the internet.

    As you can see above, each device is using IP/Gateways that correspond correctly to the networks they are to use.
