Thread: openSUSE fresh install does not connect to network

    Default Re: openSUSE fresh install does not connect to network

    MAC address was one of the first things, I've checked. Changing desktop's one to laptop's one gives nothing.

    I found a cable for connecting router and computer, it's a crosscable, isn't it? I connected computers with it, gave them static IPs and pinged each other—sucessfully. So?

    No.
    Connecting a computer to a router is done with a straight network cable. You need a crosscable to connect two computers directly without a router.

    But in my experience, most network interfaces nowadays (or rather since years) are smart enough to figure out themselves whether this is a straight or cross cable and act correctly accordingly. IOW, it should not matter what cable you use.

    Ah...

    Ok, in that case, as ping worked it proves that the network card in the
    desktop computer works. wimoza, try more things like ssh from desktop to
    laptop.

    If it works, then the problem is outside your computer: cable, socket,
    or your ISP configuration, that does not allow your desktop for some reason.


    Compare the complete configuration between desktop and laptop; you know:

    Code:
    ifconfig
    route
    cat /etc/resolv.conf | egrep -v "^[[:space:]]*$|^#"

    Well, I plugged a router between cable and desktop and set cloned MAC to the desktop, and internet connection appeared. I upgraded all the packages of the desktop OS and restarted it without router and it still works. Mystery…

    Anyway, thank you very much for your hints!

    Maybe a Wicked problem that has been fixed by an update?
    There has been 3 updates for it since the 13.2 release.
