In the next few days I will probably/hopefully have numerous questions about openSuse 12.3 and this statement may accompany each as a preamble/postscript to pre-empt anyone suggesting I try 13.1 - I have and would refer you to Soapbox for my appraisal!
The question -
During the live session, the internet connection was fine. During first boot after installation the system did an automatic update with no complaint. It even did another minor update on second boot.
However, when launch FF - no connection. There is no network icon in the system tray so launch “Network Connection” but although it currently has a choice of wired or wireless all dialogues are greyed out and the message
The network services are not compatible with this version.
in a pop-up.
Until this is resolved there’s no point to further questions!
I haven’t described the h/w because I feel the problem lies elsewhere, especially with it being fine from liveusb and a wire connection available?
There’s a bug in 12.3 that makes you having to reboot once for the network to work, see the release notes.
Also that Network management applet only works when NetworkManager is running, but the default on a desktop PC is to use ifup.
So enter YaST->Network Devices->Network Settings and enable NetworkManager on the “Global Options” tab.

But it is not.
The original post was with openSUSE 12.3, and you have 13.1.
The 12.3 version had a specific network problem just after install, so
prominent that it was documented on the release notes, which explained
how to solve it.
My answer which you quoted to read the release notes was pertinent for
him, but not for you.
Please, on the future, start a new thread unless you are absolutely sure
that it is the same problem, and please, give full details.
Cheers / Saludos,
