No kMIX lights

Normally KMIX should have lights like these green indicators but I have nothing, no lights and no sound.

Anything I can do???

Is your sound card detected in YaST -> Hardware -> Sound?

If you have no sound, you could try working your way through the openSUSE audio troubleshooting guide:
SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE

Yes my card is detected

Unfortunately I dont have internet access either…for some reason it sees my wired hardware but no network connection.

I have this network adapter wired Realtek RTL-8168, the hardware compatibility list says it should be ok

And I have this onboard soundcard VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 with spdif out.

I unmuted PCM in alsamixer and kmix can see it but I have no green light, or even a spot where the light ought to be…just a slider that goes all the way up to the blue wave.
