Networking :: Disabled In OpenSUSE - Enable?

I am using openSUSE since last 4 years ,which is installed on my External Transcend 320 Gig External Hard-disk. Now I don't know why but my network is not working, i.e. when I click on "Network Manager", it reads, "Network Manager disabled". So is there any way to overcome from this problem? I also tried to restart the network service but, it did not worked.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disabled - How To Re-enable
We're on vacation here with free wifi and I brought two laptops. The older of the two laptops running Ubuntu 10.04 and a Broadcom wireless chip suddenly wouldn't work this morning. I checked and it says wireless disabled, however wireless is grayed out when I right click on network manager. I have -no- idea what to do. I've never seen wireless just die like that. I popped open the cover but the wireless card is fine. I re-seated it, booted back up, still no sign of it.

What can I do?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disabled / Enable This?
I updated from Ubuntu 9 to 10 some while ago and can no longer connect to the internet via wireless. The computer is a Medion 96290 with a USB wireless card. Running "lsusb" gives code...

This tells me a driver is installed but it may not be the correct one. I copied this driver from the Windows driver file.

Network Manager shows "Wireless Network" greyed out and "wireless is disabled".

WICD shows net8187b as the installed driver and that the hardware is present.

There is a wireless switch on the keyboard which it was not necessary to use in Ubuntu 9 and is inoperative in Ubuntu 10.

I have searched through and applied many suggestions without success and have posted this problem on a couple of forums, again without success.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Video Acceleration Disabled - Enable?
opensuse v11.2, linux x86_64
ati radeon hd3200 (built into motherboard)
gnome desktop

The video acceleration is clearly not enabled since I can practically watch each pixel drawn. (Well, a bit hyperbolic, but really slow.) Another system, same hardware, had this slow video problem and at one point required a complete OS re-installation. The slow video refresh went away. So there is some way to configure the graphics+display to enable acceleration at install time.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Hardware Disabled And Cant Re-enable It?

Here is from terminal

dan@dan-Inspiron-1545:~$ sudo lshw -C network

Ubuntu :: Eth0 Disabled - How To Enable
I installed the server version 10.04. The only problem with the install was setting up the network. I believe it was due to the fact that my nic was not setup correctly. The installation reconciled the nic, but upon the reboot after the install, I had no network capabilities. I tried to ping the router, no luck. ifconfig only showed lo. Also, the GUI (command F7) freezes and does not responds. The last thing shown is configuring web server. I tried to ndsiwrapp the drivers to the nic, but found out that ndsiwrapper is for wifi connections.

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Is Disabled - Won't Enable
So I have been trying to connect my Wiimote up to my PC using the following HOWTO: [URL]... I had it working last week and for some reason it has now stopped working. I am using a USB Bluetooth dongle and I am sure that it is still working because I can connect the Wiimote up to my laptop no problem. What I have noticed is that on my Laptop the bluetooth icon is highlighted and on my PC although the Icon is there it is greyed out. When I go to preferences and click on turn on Bluetooth the button greys out for a while and then comes back saying "Turn Bluetooth on" again.

Ubuntu Networking :: HP Pavilion Wireless Enable/Disable Button / "Wireless Disabled By Hardware Switch"?
I've had a host of problems since upgrading to 11.04 Natty Narwhal, so let's deal with these 1 at a time.

I've got a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G60 laptop. Next to the power button is a handy wireless on/off button. This has always worked well with previous editions (9.04,through 10.10). first press toggles the wireless off, second press toggles it on.

Not so in 11.04. The toggle off works great, first time. But, it will not toggle back on. Not after any number of tries, not after restarting, not after booting into other OS's (9.10 and Vista) re-enabling it there and then booting back into Narwhal. to further complicate the issue, this feature bypass the network manager, so toggling the wireless off by the switch leaves me showing no wireless adapter in the network manager. I also restarted, switched from Unity to a Gnome session, but the issue still persists.

As my only network options are wireless, this has become a substantial inconvenience.
EDIT: so the network util is actually saying "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Also noticed it I enable it in 9.10, reboot to 11.04 (where I inevitably fail to re-enable it), then reboot into 9.10, it will initially be disabled. The key difference is in 9.10 I have the ability to enable wifi using the hardware button. It seems that 11.04 is remembering that wireless is disabled between boots. Is there a place it might be storing this value? If so, I may be able simply to set the value as enabled, since toggling that silly button isn't working.
found this thread:"Wireless disabled by hardware switch" bug? - Natty
seems to be a similar issue. I'll be following how that one develops, too.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Disabled On Boot - Cannot Re-enable
I have recently installed 10.4 (wubi installation), and am having strange problems with my networking.

It was working fine, wireless enabled, connecting to my network fine. Then for what seems like no reason, it decided to disable the wirless on boot, and I cannot re-enable it, the option to enable it (by right clicking the nm applet) is greyed out.

I have had this problem twice now, the first time it happened, my ubuntu installation was really new, so I just reinstalled, no harm done. The second time I did something that seemed to fix it (for a while at least), but now that is not working.

Ubuntu :: Second Monitor Disabled After Restart / Enable This?
I've recently installed a second monitor and it's great having all that extra space.

However, Ubuntu 'loses' the new monitor after a restart and I have to go into System>Preferences>Display and get the second monitor re-enabled and put to the left of my existing monitor. Quick flicker and the second monitor is on.

I don't really want to have to do this every day so am I missing something so my second monitor is remembered?

Ubuntu :: Mistakenly Disabled Desktop Cube / Enable It?
I'm running 11.04 with Unity and enabled Desktop Cube in Compiz Settings Manager. I ended up disabling services, i think "largedesktop" and enabling others like OpenGL and composite. Anyway, unity no longer works including the bar above and the icons to the left. Any idea how I can fix this?

Rebooting or reinstalling Deluge seems to have no effect.Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Ubuntu :: When Click On Networking Icon In System Tray - Says Networking Disabled
I do have internet cause I am using it on W7. The only thing that I have done different is I left the pc on over night so I guess it went to suspend for the first time. Then I powered off. After turning the pc back on and logging in I have no internet. Not even with the Ethernet plugged directly in. There is supposed to be a little blue light on when it sees the wireless and that is off. When I click on the networking icon in the system tray it says networking disabled. It shows no wireless. When I plug directly in I still get nothing. I'm using 10.04

OpenSUSE :: Compositing Is Temporarily Disabled?
This is probably already on these forums, but I recently re-installed suse 11.3 and had the desktop effects working fine with the desktop cube animation and everything. But not the case this time...I resume compositing, and try my desktop effect shortcuts, but nothing happens and it comes up saying for me to press Alt+Shift+F12 to resume the compositing again. I do that, but still nothing, and I even re-apply the desktopct settings completely and restart the computer and it comes up saying that none of them were activated or something in the notifications pop-up on the bottom right of the screen. I thought I downloaded the right files (OpenGL??) from the repositories along with basically anything I thought would make it work.
