    Re. the wireless: can you take photos from the screen, put them somewhere on the web and share the URL here?
    Right now we do not have internet coming to the house other than the hotspots on our phones. Both machines are currently hardwired to the modem I bought when we did have service. I was only trying to use a wifi adaptor fpr the purpose of copy and pasting anything into my forum replies.

    I have an imgur account I can take pictures and add to my gallery then post here

    No, there isn't. You have to paste the BBCODE link from imgur here.....

    My router-modems have a USB port that can connect a or sim-card dongle for an Internet fallback service. Anyway getting some sort of network connection will be essential before worrying about file serving

    I contacted the manufacturing company's tech support about using my hotspot through the modem and they said I can't. There is 2 usb ports on the modem. One in the front and one in the rear that is for media sharing but only recognizes 1 drive

    “ifconfig” is deprecated in favour of “ip”, but still available in the Leap repositories and useful.

    Eth0 seems to be electrically connected, but no network.
    Check that the gateway device is acting as a DHCP server (Is the Win10 machine connected and receiving an IP address?), and is Leap- eth0 configured as a DHCP client (YaST > System < Network Settings)?

    What do you get from “ipconfig” on Win10? How are things connected? Did you install Leap-15.1 as a server or a desktop?

    On openSUSE, when you open a text console/terminal to type your commands,
    The default will almost always be enhanced, which means you will see numerous features which aren't normally found in terminals (particularly if you were using another distro), a few off the top of my head
    • Copy and paste using the DE clipboard so the same text can in turn be copy and pasted into another application, even an HTML browser like what you use to create Forum posts
    • Color coding for various reasons... Such as when you have elevated to root permissions.
    • Scrolling with scrollbars


    If you prefer to use an unenhanced console/terminal, xterm is also typically installed in all Desktops by default.
    If you are using xterm, you can still copy/paste, but not directly... Instead, you run your command and direct the output to a text file with a rt-angle like the following. If a file doesn't already exist, one will be created and if a file already exists, the file will be over-written. In this case, the file is wherever your cursor's position happens to be.
    Code:
    ping -n 3 127.0.0.1 > ping_result.txt
    So, you have a certain and easy way to accurately paste your actual commands and results into your Forum posts.
    Normally, you won't have to snap a picture and then from the picture type something manually.
