Network problem

Hello I install Opensuse 11.1 with KDE 4.1, there are several problems with networking.

  1. When the desktop environment starts, a small network manager window is on top left of screen, ever stays in system tray, I have to manually close the window and run knetworkmanager
  2. Whatever network I connect to(wired, wireless), the connections seem to be established, but I cannot access anything, I have to run as root: dhclient -r to release and then dhcpcd wlan0 to refresh, it is like ipconfig /release and /renew in Windows

This two problems annoy me very much, can someone give me any suggestions?


Upgrade to KDE4 4.2.1. (lots of howto’s in the forum). After upgrade you should be alright.
