    Default Cannot access Internet through wlan

    Hi Evry1,

    Brand new to the OpenSuse project. Hoping some one can help.

    I'm have an old AMD Duron running 11.3 and I am having no luck in connecting to the www.

    I'm using a D-Link usb wireless adapter.

    I seem to have an IP address for the PC. here is the print from ifconfig:


    wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:12:0E:45:75:F5
    inet addr:192.168.2.7 Bcast:192.168.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
    inet6 addr: fe80::218:eff:fec45:75f5/64 Scope:Link
    UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:246 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:103 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:26751 (26.1Kb) TX bytes:14205 (13.8 Kb)

    any help much appreciated

    Thanks

    If this is an unpatched 11.3 distro, then you may have one of two possible bugs.

    Please post the output of '/sbin/route -n' and 'cat /etc/resolv.conf'.

    HI. Thanks for the quick reply.

    Could you tell me what you are looking for as I cannot paste from the PC as it will not connect to internet.

    Sorry !?

    The '/sbin/route -n' should have output like

    Code:
    Kernel IP routing table
    Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
    0.0.0.0         192.168.1.1     0.0.0.0         UG    0      0        0 wlan0
    192.168.1.0     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U     2      0        0 wlan0
    In particular, we need the line where the flags are UG. Based on the IP address
    you posted earlier, if that line is missing, you should enter

    Code:
    sudo /sbin/route add default gw 192.168.2.1
    If your router is not at that address, change the command appropriately. Once
    the line with the UG flags is present, then

    Code:
    ping -c 5 192.168.2.1
    ping -c 5 8.8.8.8
    should both work. If not, report back if #1 worked.

    The output of 'cat /etc/resolv.conf' needs to have a line "nameserver X.X.X.X"
    where the X's are replaced by the IP address of your nameserver. It might be
    that of your router if it runs DNS, or one provided by your ISP.

    Once both the pings work and you have a namneserver entry, then

    Code:
    ping -w www.samba.org
    should work. If so, immediately run

    Code:
    sudo zypper up
    to update the system.
