I am new to this specific forum - so Hello to everyone.
I have searched around a bit for a knetwork manager issue I am having on my opensuse 11.2 32 bit install. My wireless card is an
04:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)
I am currently using the Broadcom wl driver
I am on the Internet with this machine as I am typing using the older “ifup” method. I am having great difficulty connecting to the Internet when I use knetwork manger though. The strange part is when I am connected to my router with knetwork manager, I can log into my Router, but I can not get to any web-page/ping any outside address.
so far the best (I was able to locate) advice I was able to get is located in this post. < Broadcom wireless, partchy internet - openSUSE Forums >
following a posted how to to disable IPV6 (I suspect this may be the issue??), I was unable to locate modprobe.conf, or modprobe.conf.local, even after I updated via updatdb. I gave a shot at entering in “disable_ipv6=1” into “menu.lst”. However, this did not solve my issue with knetwork manager.
any suggestions? If my network information is needed when I am “connected” utilizing knetwork manager, please let me know. Hoping there is something simple that I may have overlooked. . . Any experienced sugestions?
