I just finished installing opensuse and played around with it a bit. Really nice!
But I’m stuck with one important thing, and that’s connecting to the internet.
In windows XP I’d do this.
1)Right click on Local Network Connection
2)Double click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then enter
IP address 192.168.1.59
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
Preferred DNS Server: 22.214.171.124
Alternate DNS Server: 126.96.36.199
Thing is, how is this done in OpenSuse? where do i put in all that’s above. I just cant figure out after almost 2 hours of trying and restarting.
My card shows as RTL8139.
Everything else works fine, except for this.
Could someone please help me with these things step by step
PS: I don’t use a password to go online in winXp. I just turn on the modem and once its connected i can start browsing in winXp.
Did you try going to Yast - Network Devices - networksettings
eth0 should be set to your RTL8139
Just go through it and OK at the end.
Does that help?
Thats what i’ve been doing from the past 2 hrs
Still wont work.

Did you get everything entered? Can you ping by IP address? Post the
output from these commands, please:
You should be able to configure your network stuff within Yast though you
obviously must do more than click ‘Next/Finish’ over and over again. The
DNS stuff and Routing information along with IP/subnet information must be
entered, but that’s all pretty obvious.
sudo /sbin/yast firewall

I’ll post the results soon.
And no, i haven’t been simply clicking next/finish again and again rotfl!
These screenshots might help, although they’re from openSUSE 11.0 I think, but you’ll get the picture from them (oh no – what a bad pun!).
