I’m running leap 15 which I have practiced installing many times on a dell optiplex 780.it is the sole operating system. Each of the various times I installed 15,i was able to configure my eth0 without problems. Wlan0 was problematic but I was able to get it going from time to time.
Once I had got my replacement 1Tb drives, I started again and went through the procedures I had become familiar with.
I configured eth0 with yast.
Using Firefox, I can connect to my BT hub, I can see my machine, it’s name, it’s url and it’s state of connection. I also track this on my android tablet.
So far, so good.
I cannot connect to the Internet!
I can connect on other devices on my network but not the Internet! Other equipment, such as the android I’m sending this from, are fine. Annoyingly, the windows box is fine too.
I am writing this mail from the android.
So I’ve done the following at least five times each. More like ten. It’s been a week of head scratching.
Starting with nothing configured, I’ve configured eth0, nay luck.
15 appears to default to wicked but having failed to get a connection to the Web I’ve started NetworkManager and tried from there. Still nay luck.
I’ve repeated the process with wlan0 having deleted the eth0 configuration. Reboot, try to get it up with wicked, can connect to hub but no further. Delete.
Reboot start again. I’ve noticed now though, I can’t use wlan0, only wlan1! Nothing else is configured so I really don’t understand this.
At the last, (and current), configuration, wlan2 is the only one available to me. I don’t really care what’s called but I would like it to work.
So, with either eth0 or wlan?, I can get access to the BT hub but no further.
I feel I’m missing something obvious but also feel secure in your ability to point that out!
I’ve had it connected with DHCP and without. It connects to the hub but no further than that very local lan.
Any guidance appreciated.
