    Default tethering conflict with ethernet connection

    When I connect my smartphone in tethering to openSUSE Leap 15.1 a new connection is automatically created, the name is “Wired connection 1”.
    When I disconnect smartphone connection is automatically deleted.

    At work I need a “Wired ethernet” connection too but after creating this connection tethering don’t works anymore because “Wired connection 1” isn’t created when I connect smartphone.

    Your description isn't clear whether you're still talking about the same machine.
    If so,
    Perhaps disconnect your machine from you company LAN before attaching your smartphone?

    If your work computer is using NetworkManager, then it is likely using "Wired connection 1" for ethernet connection. But I would expect it to then create "Wired connection 2" for your smart phone.

    But maybe your work computer is using "wicked" rather than "NetworkManager".

    My smartphone connects as a wifi device and works fine.

    Are you using a USB connection to the smartphone with pdanet+ software? It worked with windows but I have yet to work with opensuse.

    Whether connected or not after creating "Wired connection" tethering don't works.

    In my pc tethering is automatically named "Wired connection 1", "ethernet connection" has the name I give when I create connection.

    of course, tethering means smartphone connected to pc using usb cable


    ... with pdanet+ software?
    I don't know "pdanet"

    Most Android phone cannot act like an ethernet gateway when a USB cable is attached - pdanet+ adds "ethernet" support to Android phone when the vendor disables USB and/or wifi tethering.

    It (pdanet+) works great with Windows but not with Opensuse Linux ( some folks claim it works with this or that version of Linux but I have yet to see it work in Linux )

    If your phone is Android and the vendor allows USB tethering Linux will find a new network option with a name like “auto usb0” (and not ethernet on my Galaxy SIII.) My newest phone does not allow USB tethering even with pdanet+ but does work fine wi-fi.

    Iphone - I have no idea on them.

    May be I've not been clear.
    My smartphone is an Android (Huawei) and works well in tethering in openSUSE. But if I made an ethernet connection thethering don't works. If I delete ethernet connection tethering works again.
    In same laptop I have other Linux distribution and tethering works, also if I have ethernet connection.

    Can you use the NetworkManager connection editor to manually create a working connection? I do that for my various defined ethernet and wifi connections.
