After installation: internet is not working, network card seems to be not found

I just finished a openSUSE 13.1 (64 bit) on my pc, during the installation i already noticed that i could not add online repositorys because there was a network error. After the installation was finished i booted into kde and there was not internet. I looked into yast->network settings:
the global settings was in ifup but in the second tap “overview” or similar, there was not even a network devices listed!
I switched to network manager but that did not helped even after a reboot the problem was still there.

  • I have Windows 7 installed on the same pc, internet/network is working here -> the network card (wired and connected with a thomson router) is not broken

I searched for a solution but i did not found anything helpful, apart from a hint that maybe my network card is not supported by the kernel
anyway here is the output of: /sbin/lspci -nnk

The Freescale device is actually the “Killer E2100” ethernet adapter, there’s just no support for it at all - unfortunately. You can get the E2200 variant to work with a different driver but it’s a completely different chipset so not much use here.

Easiest way to fix this is to get like a 10€/$ Realtek card and use that in a free PCI slot :slight_smile:

The device is reported as

07:00.0 Power PC [0b20]: Freescale Semiconductor Inc Device [1957:c006] (rev 10)
    Subsystem: Bigfoot Networks, Inc. Device [1a56:1201]

Is is a wired ethernet or wireless device?

This thread may be relevant to you

You may be better off replacing with a supported device.

Unfortunately the E2200 uses a completely different chipset - at least they didn’t do “DLinks” and change chipset from RevA to RevB…

The E2200 uses the alx driver, E2100 has no driver at all.

Yes, so I understand :slight_smile:

thats sad… i will buy a PCIe network card then. Can someone recommend one PCIe card that is fully supported, a nice one which has 10/100/1000/2000 Mbits and ideally works directly from the start of the installation?

Can’t go wrong with an Intel.

I have just ordered it, thank you very much.
