openSUSE 13.1 without internet

Hello!

I installed the “openSUSE 13.1 - 64bit - KDE” and to my surprise the system is without internet.

How I do to solve this problem?

Thank you!

First of all you should provide some more information.

Like, wired or wireless, what network card, how do you connect to the Internet, how does it not work?

If you don’t see any interfaces in the Networkmanagement applet, you just may have to enable NetworkManager in YaST->Network->Network Settings->Global Options.

Thank you for specifying which version of openSUSE you installed. However we need a bit more information to help you:

  1. Did you install from the offline DVD or KDE Live CD?
  2. When you installed, did you check the `Automatic configuration’ checkbox?
  3. Is it a desktop or laptop?
  4. Are you intended to connect using a wired or wireless connection?
  5. Are you connecting via a static IP gateway or a home DHCP router or something else?
  6. Are you trying to connect via ifup or KDE’s network manager?

After you answer these questions, do not be surprised if/when we have to ask more in order to identify the cause of the
problem.

The problem was solved by going to:
YaST -> System -> Network Settings -> Global Options.

and select the option:
“(x) Controlado pelo usuário com o NetworkManager.”

And which one?
You may have to install a driver.

Please post the output of:

lspci -nnk

The switch doesn’t matter to openSUSE. But of course if it would be broken, networking would not work… :wink:
