    It seems more likely that it received an answer which did not include an IP address.
    In fact, to establish communication with my router, it takes 6-8 seconds.
    That's likely the time for several steps, of which the IP address is only one.

    Here's a link for that bug report that I previously mentioned:

    Bug 1080832

    There's a change in the way "wicked" is handling DHCP requests. My router does not support the newer way, and it seems likely that your router also does not support it.

    The bug report gives a way to revert to the older method, but that's unlikely to work with the NET installer.

    My workaround for intalling was to manually assign an IP address (with a wired connection). I had to also manually set a subnet mask, a route and a DNS server. After intall, I used the workaround in the bug report, so that everything now works normally.

    Once again, I suggest you try one of the live media, and install from there. Live media are using a different method to setup the network, and are not affected by this particular problem.

    Last time I showed you the console ALT-F3, now I'll show you the console ALT-F4.

    Can you explain the meaning of the line to me?

    "tg3 0000:07:00.0 enp7s0: Board does not support EEE!"

    The search in google did not work.

    As best I can tell (from the results of Google search), "EEE" here stands for "Energy Efficient Ethernet".

    I would think that's a message that you can safely ignore.

    Last time I tried to connect to the Internet via a wireless access point. The laptop could not connect to the access point. I continued my experiments. Now I tried to go online through a wired connection. Connection to the Internet occurred, but the system still could not boot. I show you the console ALT-F3.

    Can you explain to me why the installer does not find the files it needs in the repository?

    404 Not Found ???

    I can only guess.

    It looks as if your access to the Internet is being restricted. I might expect something like this to happen if I am going through a captive portal such I encounter at hotels.

    It's also possible that the download site (or the mirror to which you were redirected) was undergoing maintenance at the time you connected.

    Assuming that you're using typical home equipment,

    Connecting with a wired connection should "just work" and avoids problems associated with wireless.
    Remember, you have to turn off your wireless or your machine may still attempt to use the wireless and you'll continue to see the same error.

    To test whether you're connecting properly,
    I recommend you download a LiveCD image as others have suggested, although you might or might not be able to install from it, at least you'll be able to figure out how set up a wired connection properly.

    1. Download and create a bootable LiveCD for LEAP 15. Select any one from the following page
    https://download.opensuse.org/distri...eap/15.0/live/

    2. With your LiveCD created (on CD, DVD or USB),
    - Disable your wireless, preferably by hardware switch, key, or key combination... Whatever is required for your machine.
    - Connect your patch cable from your machine to the switch, hub or router.
    - Boot your LiveCD

    3. From within your LiveCD,
    Run the following and include in a post to this Forum
    If you don't have a network connection, take a picture of your screen displaying the result with your mobile phone and post that.
    Code:
    ip addr
    Once you are able to set up a wired connection with your LiveCD,
    You can then try installing again.

    I connected to the same openSUSE repository, to which the installer Tumbleweed-NET is connected. See the screenshot:

    https://paste.opensuse.org/61994839

    If the installer does not find, for example, an "autoinst.xml" file, then from the screenshot, I see that there is really does not exist "autoinst.xml" file in the repository. This indicates the apparent inconsistency of those developers who make the distribution Tumbleweed-NET and those developers who accompany the openSUSE repository.

    I'll tell you more.
    Two weeks ago I downloaded the image Tumbleweed-NET and tried to install the system on a PC with a wired connection to the Internet.
    At that time, all the files needed to download the PC on the site were present and the PC was booted up to the point where it was already possible to start the installation.
    So the repository Tumbleweed-NET was broken approximately 4-5 days ago.
