    Default Upgraded from 12.2 to 13.1 over the intenet and lost internet connection

    Newly installed 13.1 indicates that my wired connection is working. . . But Firefox cannot connect and Evolution cannot fetch email. I am not the most computer literate person around, so I do not know where to start. The wireless modem (which feeds my wired OpenSuse machine) is working for my MS Windows computers. Can anyone help get me started on finding the problem? Much appreciated.

    The subject line says "upgrade", but the text inside says "newly". So,
    in case it is an upgrade, check the release notes:

    Robin, Yes, this was an upgrade and not a new installation. Thanks for the help, but I am not sure what to change in the sysfig/network file. It reads as follows:


    john@linux-ingr:~> ls /etc/sysconfig/network
    config ifcfg-eth0 ifcfg.template ifroute-lo providers routes.YaST2save
    dhcp ifcfg-lo if-down.d if-up.d routes scripts
    john@linux-ingr:~>


    Do I need to edit this? What do I delete. Thanks for your help.

    When pasting computer commands and such, please use a CODE BLOCK, so
    that the forum software doesn't do silly things like converting URLS to
    tiny urls or otherwise hide or alter the commands you entered. You get
    them by clicking on the '#' button in the forum editor.

    Assuming that you are using traditional networking method with yast,
    just start the yast network configuration module (or directly from the
    cli with "yast2 lan"), and find out if you see two network interfaces,
    one with the old name, another with the new. Remove both, exit, then add
    a new interface.

    Two interfaces was not the problem. Somehow, the update turned off DHCP. Thanks, Carlos You nonetheless got me going in the right direction and I appreciate it.
