Hi All ,
I am using 2 routers . The Primary router is TPLINK WR740N on which I have DD-WRT flashed. The second router is also the same one but running the stock firmware. I have WAN plugged on to the primary router and have set up a client-bridge connection whereby the second one connects wirelessly to the dd-wrt router. I am using a LAN cable from Second router to my desktop.
Almost all OSes (WIN/ UBUNTU / MANJARO etc) seem to recognize this connection as LAN and I am able to connect to Internet straightaway.
I want to install OpenSUSE 13.2 from a live USB. When I run the OS from the live mode (GNOME) , I notice a small icon with 3 dots in the sys tray and when I click that it is always showing the status “connecting” but not establishing connection.
On tinkering with Network management , I see 2 modes - Network Manager and Wicked . The interface detected is not eth0 but eth0sn2 (more than 3 characters) or something. Wicked mode also does not seem to work. How do I make the system detect my network?. Also I get the message that nm-applet to be downloaded for internet to work. How do I do that without first connecting thru SUSE?
My network adapter is Realtek if that could be of any help.
