Albeit my Internet connection is capped at 155Kbps for now. Downloading anything can go at full speed, but not browsing. Beside opensuse.org everything else is slow and sometimes won’t even open at all.
Any search engines, be it Google, Bing, or Ask, rarely would ever load. When I view the source on firefox/opera it looks like the html is complete, but it’s not showing anything. Maybe downloading remote images is stuck or something.
I’m connected using a Pantech USB CDMA modem and KNetworkManager. Oh by the way, when I’ve disconnected it once, it wouldn’t reconnect again. And if I mess with Yast’s networking configurations, rcnetwork, etc it’d kill something which makes KNetworkManager say ‘Network Management is disabled.’
I suspect this strange Internet experience has probably got to do with my DNS…
My DNS setting is acquired from the ISP, which is as follows:
But it works ok on Vista, eh.
But I’ll have to say besides this problem with the Internet, everything else works miraculously well on my old Compaq laptop with Turion X2, totally unlike with 11.1. And I feel that it’s much faster and stable. No more looking around for solutions for my wifi and audio. (^^)=b
I wonder if you need to change the default DHCP setting and manually enter the DNS stuff. I know some user have had to do something along these lines. IIRC they also have issue with Yast not connecting to the repos to get updates and download software.

If Caf’s advice does not help, you might want to disable IPv6.
YaST2–>Network Devices → Network Settings (Global Options tab). Uncheck
the Enable IPv6 box, ignore the warning.

That looks weird: do you have your own caching DNS server local to your network on 192.168.255.3? otherwise, it sounds wrong. Did your isp tell you to do that?
Assuming that the isp did tell you to use 10.88.77.6, try putting that first. Or try using openDNS or Google’s
Maybe it’s related to these:
I was getting HTML code but no images and accessing other domains other than the one Firefox loaded up with didn’t work, i.e. Google, maps.google.com, mail.google.com work but going to openSUSE.org didn’t.
How to fix for now:
- In Firefox, select the menu Edit->Preferences
- Select Advanced menu
- Select Network tab
- Select Settings… for Connections Configure how Firefox connects to the internet
- Set to No proxy (Auto proxy… seems to work too)
