    Can you show the output from;

    Hi
    Can you try the r8168 (since your output indicates this device) driver from Forum user Sauerland's 15.0 Update repository;

    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...auerland/r8168

    You can add the repository, or grab these two files
    https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...7.4.x86_64.rpm
    https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...7.4.x86_64.rpm

    Not sure, but may need to run mkinitrd after installing just to be sure the blacklist of the r8169 driver occurs.

    Assuming your system is up to date and running the latest kernel?

    manythanks, yes my system is update and run this kernel:
    Code:
    pla@pla4-TW:~> uname -r
    4.12.14-lp151.28.10-default
    pla@pla4-TW:~>
    I found the packages that you suggested me in the packman repo
    Code:
    Essentials / openSUSE_Leap_15.1
    http://packman.links2linux.de
    r8168-kmp-default 8.047.01_k4.12.14_lp151.28.10-lp151.3.1
    r8168-blacklist-r8169 8.047.01-lp151.3.1
    and I installed them and it seems to solve the problem, yesterday I tried to change among networks connecting by cable and it worked fine.
    I was surprised that r8169 (with highest number) was older than r8168 (with lower number) as the description in yast says On many Realtek Ethernet controllers the old device driver r8169 does not work reliably. To solve this the r8169 kernel module has to be blacklisted to enable the system to load the new device driver r8168.

    Can anyone advise me on how to accomplish installing the r8168 driver from the Rescue portion of the Leap 15.1 install disk?
    It went through the entire upgrade successfully, but when rebooted into the installed Leap 15.1.1 it cannot configure the network and shows all the same issues described for the previous poster. i.e. 8168 network device built into the motherboard, no ip connection at all. When I rebooted into tbe install disk and selected Rescue, I then had the network connected, but I am not a good CLI person.
    Thanks
    ken
