Thread: wifi connection how to?

    Default wifi connection how to?

    I have OpenSUSE Leap 15.1 installed on my PC. I would like to use my wifi network. I tried to use YAST2 but could not achieve internet access. Then I found a tip on the net to use Network Manager. Where do I find it and how to use it?

    What Desktop Environment are you using? You should have an applet in the desktop to manage network connections, that is an interface to NetworkManager.
    Should you prefer a text interface, open a terminal and try:
    Code:
    nmtui
    Check "man nmtui" for details. You might also check "man NetworkManager" or "man nmcli" for a command line interface.

    You may be suffering from a well-known bug in the Leap 15.1 ISO. It tells you that it is installing network manager and then installs wicked.

    Go to YaST>System>Network settings (ignore any error messages). Make sure the Network Setup Method is NetworkManager Service.

    Go to YaST>Servces Manager and make sure that NetworkManager is set to On boot and Wicked is set to Manually. Save any necessary changes.

    Close YaST; open a terminal, enter su followed by your root password and enter:
    Code:
    rm /etc/resolv.conf
    init 6
    When you reboot, all should be fine.
