Lately i installed openSUSE 11.4 x68_64 with KDE4 and wanted to use my usb umts modem (huawei e-160). I tried everything to get a working internet connection (knetworkmanager, nm-applet, umtsmon, kppp(both with ifup)), but i just get a ‘connection’ without DNS resolution. I’m really searching via google & co for a few days now and all the solutions i found, didn’t work for me. Like putting working DNS servers in the resolv.conf, putting my user into the dialout and uucp group, setting NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY=“STATIC_FALLBACK ppp* NetworkManager”, i’ve put working DNS servers in all of the dial up programs, tried different connection settings,… all with one strange result: i can successfully ping 22.214.171.124 (a german telekom DNS server) but no(!) other one, like 126.96.36.199. It looks like the different dial up methods i used all update the DNS servers correctly, because the DNS servers being set under windows with the original vendor software are the same as the ones in my resolv.conf but i can’t ping them (Ping is sent, nothing received). Then i tried to connect to a server via firefox, konqueror, opera, etc. by entering the ip (like 188.8.131.52 (google.com)) and i couldn’t connect. Trying to ping servers directly doesn’t work either. EXCEPT for 184.108.40.206 and that’s what really confuses me!
route -v shows this:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
10.64.64.64 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
Ok, here’s the profile from knetworkmanager: profile.
I did a clean install of 11.4, left everything untouched/default and get these results for route and ifconfig. DHCP config file says ‘DHCLIENT_SET_DEFAULT_ROUTE=“yes”’…
I just changed NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY=“auto” in /etc/sysconfig/network/config to NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY=“ppp* NetworkManager”, reconnected and it works.
Which is interesting because almost all problems with that setting have been solved by NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY=“STATIC_FALLBACK ppp* NetworkManager”…
Thanks a lot for your help!
Same to me (11.4_x64) with Gobi Qualcomm using umtsmon. But something is different to yours: Using bash, typing route and hit the enter key I do not receive the whole answer and after that it is unpossible to enter additional commands. It seems that the routing table is beeing locked by someone and due to this, any program who tries to read the routing table,fails. In the end there is of course no default gateway.
But how could we solve this? Is there a logfile which shows a hint? Maybe it is possible to create a routingtable.conf.man for example as an offline file for use with the umts stick.
