I downloaded the .iso for OpenSUSE 42.1-0, burned the image to DVD and started the upgrade. During the upgrade from 13.2 to 42.1 it finds and displays the previously used repositories and then notes that to add the upgrade repositories the network needs to be configured and asks if I would like to do so. I click on “yes” and it re-displays the same “configure network?” prompt. Regardless of how many times I choose “Yes” after the prompt re-displays it never brings up any network configuration screens.
I finally gave up and selected “No” for the configure network prompt and install is proceeding, but all of the Slide Show details are showing 13.2 messages even though the Details view shows the media being used is for OpenSUSE-42.1-0.
The machine I am using is connected to the intranet (wired and wireless) and was working correctly with openSUSE 13.2.
Have you read through https://de.opensuse.org/SDB:Distribution-Upgrade ?
Apparently, best practice is to upgrade the repositories before starting the installation.
Maybe this will render the network unnecessary during installation.
Regarding the network config: Try entering ‘netsetup=1’ in the boot-menu on the Boot Options line.
You should then be asked for network config by linuxrc before installation. (See, e.g. http://users.suse.com/~ug/AutoYaST_FAQ.html#aj )

Notice that 42.1 is a Beta, and the upgrade procedure has not yet been
tested. You have to test things and report in bugzilla the issues you
find, but you should already know this before trying such an upgrade.
