I just got Opensuse up and running and Ive been trying to find out how to setup the network configurations so I can access the internet. I shows both my wireless and wired connection under Overview as DHCP. Do I have to manually put in the IP address, Netmask, gateway and stuff like that?
Woohoo. Got it to work. I didnt have my wireless to start at boot. It was off! Fun Fun!
Im using the internet but its REAL slow compared to windows xp. Whats the deal?
A solution is to tell Firefox not to use IPv6. To do this:
- Type “about:config” for the URL in Firefox and hit enter (without the quotes, of course).
- In the filter field, type “DNS” and hit enter.
- Double-click on “network.dns.disableIPv6″, changing its value from False to True
There are pics here and you can disable IPv6 in yast > network devices > network settings > global options
and for kde via the yast System tab /etc/sysconfig Editor module (change Desktop -> KDE_USE_IPV6 from ‘yes’ to ‘no’)
