No Internet Access Opensuse 12.3

AS a previous poster said (theirs is 13.1) but thread closed with no answers, My internet connection on my openSUSE 12.3 was working perfectly fine; then after a reboot the internet connection doesn’t seem to work. Network manager says connected, has IP address, Wlan scan shows connection etc… now no websites load. Other devices are fine on network. ANy ideas?

Could you please answer the questions I asked there for your case?

Certainly. Thanks!


Network unreachable

local pings 192.168.x.x = works.

unknown host


resolv.conf is all commented out. There is however about 70 - 80 resolve.conf.gibberish files

/etc/resolv.conf file autogenerated by netconfig!

Before you change this file manually, consider to define the

static DNS configuration using the following variables in the

/etc/sysconfig/network/config file:




or disable DNS configuration updates via netconfig by setting:


See also the netconfig(8) manual page and other documentation.

Note: Manual change of this file disables netconfig too, but

may get lost when this file contains comments or empty lines

only, the netconfig settings are same with settings in this

file and in case of a “netconfig update -f” call.

Please remove (at least) this line when you modify the file!

So there is not even a DNS server specified.
You can just remove those 70-80 files if you want, they are not used anyway.

Could you please post the output of “ifconfig” please? And the output of “route” as well.

Maybe you have setup a static IP address? Try to use DHCP instead, then all correct configurations (like DNS server and subnet mask, f.e.) should be made automatically.
