12.3 - cannot load webpages or ping (but can access router)

Hi all

After making the apparently huge mistake of migrating to opensuse 12.3 my wireless internet has been working fine, as of starting my pc today I have a local ip which i can see through ifconfig, i can open my router pages and see that it’s still connecting there (And my router is fine as windows machine and phone connect ok through it) but i can’t traceroute, ping or load any websites

Have I lucked out and this is a really easy thing to fix perhaps so that I can get back to trying to the wonderful job of getting my nvidia graphics card to work again? or is this one more reason to try and figure out if an upgrade to 12.2 is doable?

Post the output of

ip addr
ip route
grep -i name /etc/resolv.conf

Hi, here are those outputs:

Open the settings of the connection, set it to DHCP-addresses-only, use “,” for DNS, as the gateway. Should work.

Hi, I’ll try now. I’ll be doing it through YAST, for some reason at the same time (I forgot to mention) when I alt+f2 network manager no longer comes up as a pickable result when i search for it… I’ll let the thread know how it goes

Typing this from my Opensuse machine now. Many thanks!

Does anyone know of a reason why this would suddenly have changed? and why I’ve lost Network Manager?

Did you read the release notes? :slight_smile:

I’d seen before installing that there could be network manager issues, but since this has been working for a week or so on 12.3 fine I didn’t think it’d be caused by the actual upgrade from 12.2, or it would’ve happened a week ago when the actual upgrade happened?

That’s my understanding anyway, but I’m still learning this whole thing :slight_smile:
