OpenSUSE Network :: 11.1 - Router On USB Not Detected (Unknown Device)
Mar 10, 2010
I installed 11.1 when it first came out. The PC I used gave up the ghost and I bought a refurbie, HP xw4100 and installed the 11.1 drive in it. All works except Internet connection. I am befuddled, bemused, confused and at a complete loss! The router on USB is not detected.
Boot Time - Status blinks, LAN is OFF and remains OFF. DSL blinks several times.
Booted - Status continues and DSL blinks.
YaST (NetworkManager is useless)

- Unknown Network Device (no hwinfo)
- Dynamic Address - Zeroconf
- Loop back to Overview - Unknown Device
In my YaST Network Settings (11.3), I see an entry labelled "Unknown Network Device" how to remove the confusion? The Overview tab also correctly lists my three known network devices (listed below), as does the Hardware Information utility. This is the output of lspci, and as far as I can tell, is accurate and complete. So what has YaST seen that it can't identify?
I had previously been having loads of problems getting my wireless printer to work with Linux [http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1453697]. Everything is working fine now. However, something that confused me is that whenever I tried to ping the printer _before_ I got it working, it would fail with a _different_ IP address. That is, the command 'ping x.y.z.3' would fail with a message saying it was unable to contact 'x.y.z.2'
Now I am looking at my router - for something unrelated - and I've noticed that rogue IP address shows up in the list of connected devices. It has a MAC address but for the device name it lists "<unknown>". Should I be concerned about this? how to figure out what this device is?
I am sharing files between three computers: ubuntu pc , windows xp pc and windows vista pc.( using samba ) Windows xp displays ubuntu pc correctly but vista does not,ubuntu pc is displayed as unknown device.Despite of this i connect vista and ubuntu via ip. I would like see my ubuntu pc in windows vista network.
I have an nc8000 that gives a "104 unsupported wireless network device detected" error when I plug in my Intel wifi card that I acquired recently. Based on reading, this is a common HP problem due to non-native HP hardware. If I insert the Intel Pro card after the HP boot screen, 10.04 loads just fine and Ubuntu detects the card.

For those that use Virtualbox on their slackware host and have a windows (xp) guest running. I have tried various settings for sound (Alsa, PulseAudio), the AC97 drivers are installed in the Windows xp guest os, but there is no sound and there is an unknown audio device (in the windows device manager). If I remove the AC97 drivers and use the soundblaster16 drivers in the Vbox settings there is no unknown sound device, but there's still no sound. why I can't get sound working?
I'm going to come right out and say I am a complete novice with Linux/SUSE. The equipment I'm having a problem with is a little web-server that was purchased by my employer that has, quite suddenly, stopped functioning. I was changing the IP address within YaST, at which point the device offered to update itself, which I saw no harm in. Post-update, however, I was unable to so much as ping the device.
I tried "ifconfig eth0": "Error fetching interface information: Device not found." I went into network settings via YaST and found that there are two cards now listed as: RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller Both IP addresses are "Not configured". The information pane, for both cards, cites:
RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controllerBusID : 0000:02:00.0 Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details. The only difference in either of the cards is the BusID (0000:02:00.0 and 0000:03.00.0)
I can neither edit nor delete either of these cards. As I mentioned, I am a total Linux novice, and am at a total loss for what to do next, or even how to find critical information about the system itself. I know enough to check dmesg, but not enough to have any clue what to look for in the output.
I setup the hostname for my linux machine to Linux. If I try ping Linux from the same computer it works. If I try from another computer inside my network the host can not be resolved. If I ping the IP from another computer it works.
I take a look in my router at DHCP client list and my linux machine doesn't have the Hostname set up.
How to broadcast the hostname to the entire network?
I am working on an embedded system, which is an USB MSC device that supports some vendor specific scsi commands. I am using FC10 laptop as USB host for testing, and it runs some small apps based on sg3. All has been well for ~ a week. The FC10 laptop is able to communicate with the device and retrieve data. Suddenly, starting from today, the laptop is not able to properly detect the device. When plugged-in, the MSC device is detected as input device (I thought). This is observed from "dmesg" output and changes in "/dev/input/".The device under development is running at full speed. When I connect to winXP, no problem. A windows file explorer pops up, showing the content of the drive.Also, the FC10 has no problem with other USB flash drive (high speed).
All settings are correct as far as i can tell. The wep key works on all my windows boxes. When i have connect automatically enabled it never tries to connect. if I go to edit it it pops kde wallet up i put in credentials. wallet goes away then nothing happens. if i double click connection to my router also nothing happens. I have the wep key in there and i even made it visible to make sure.
I'm having a strange problem with my network connection/DNS. I turn computer the on and it recognizes and connects to wireless or wired but I can't access any Internet resources or my router. If I ping the default gateway, I get no response and I get DNS errors from any network services that run at start up. If I stop and start the network daemon then it all works fine until the next time I turn on my laptop. It does this for both wireless and wired connection.
I've tried to edit the network interface information in YaST but it says that configuration is handled by knetworkmanager and I have no idea where that information is accessed. I should point out that it all worked fine until I tried to connect to open WAP at my school and couldn't so I connected to the wired network. Next morning I had this problem when connecting to my home network. My questions are 1. What could be the cause of this error and 2. where does one configure the network interfaces when using knetworkmanager
So up until I updated from Opensuse 11.3 to 11.4, I hadn't any issues with my network connection. At least none worth mentioning. Once I installed 11.4, I've had weird issues with varying lengths of connection. Sometimes I can't connect anywhere, sometimes I can only get to the router, sometimes I'm 100%. I'd fiddle with YAST until everything worked. I honestly have no clue whether or not anything I did had any effect.
Enough of the iffy history, here's what's happening now. For the past few weeks up until last night, I have been at 100% connectivity. I never turned off my computer until last night (it just shut itself off, like the cord was unplugged. I dunno what happened, maybe it was my foot, maybe the PSU. I think it has happened before.). When I turned it back on, I was only able to connect as far as my router (192.168.1.1, a D-Link Gaming router that has always been very good to me). I could not make it to my modem (192.168.0.1, a Quest DSL modem. Once I can get here, then usually I'm good to go 100%).
I tried again this afternoon, and no change. I then get the crazy idea to unplug the ethernet cable from it's PCI-card home and return it to the onboard port (which I long ago declared defunct). Immediately after plugging it into that port, I ran "ping 192.168.0.1" and I started getting returns. I open up Firefox and try to load an external page, and nothing happens. I go back to the console that I was pinging from, and it had stopped. I start pinging my router, and no luck. What I conclude from my little experiment is that the router is not at fault.
1. It did not change at all between being at 100% and being at 0% after reboot. 2. I was able to get returns from the modem, past the router, for a brief period of time while using the defunct ethernet port.
Since I never had these problems before updating to 11.4, I'm inclined to believe that it was the update that started these problems.
I'm on opensuse 11.4 (11.3 won't work with my monitor).
My computer gets internet through wireless and I want to share that internet through its ethernet port. So far I've tried using Knetworkmanager to create a network bridge between my wireless and wired connections. I created a new wired connection and shared it using the ip address settings. I was able to get both connections active, but the device hooked up via ethernet had no internet connectivity.
I also tried this command: echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
but another test resulted in the same fashion (no internet on wired). I believe anything I add to /proc should have an immediate effect, correct?
I've set up a server using 11.3 and ISPConfig 2. The problem is that I barely understand DNS. So the question is - If I set up two domains through ISPConfig do I have the registrar have BOTH domains pointed to my IP address and then let my DNServer figure out where to send requests or do I have to have 2 different IP addresses?
I have a D-link dir-635 firmware v. 2.30eu (latest) and a USB WLAN adapter D-link DWA-140 802.11n. The driver seems to be installed correctly since lsusb lists it correctly and all the wireless networks in the vicinity are detected including mine. When I try to connect however NetworkManager says it is activating but after awhile the windows with the newtork password appers. dmesg output:
[ 5509.487262] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1c:f0:71:03:88 try 1 [ 5509.684014] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1c:f0:71:03:88 try 2 [ 5509.884020] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1c:f0:71:03:88 try 3 [ 5510.084014] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1c:f0:71:03:88 timed out
So it is able to determine the AP:s mac address but each time it times out.
I have tried disabling the security on the router but no luck.
Not sure what to try next. I have checked some of the tips supplied in these forums but none seem to handle the issue I am having.
an issue with my broadcom wireless that is using the bcm4312 driver. I installed the b43(?) cutter firmware from the command line and now my network is detected but it just won't actually connect to it. My router has wpa security enabled but i think it worked with it before.
I had an OS 11.3 machine running as an Nis server with Nfs, also providing dns, squid, samba shares and running apache
Internet connection provided by a netgear router at 192.168.0.1, server at 192.168.0.2, clients at 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4, etc. The clients all being configured to use the server for dns the squid running on it for their proxy, logging on with Nis using the exported server's Nfs /home share as /home on the clients
Everything was setup through Yast with some conf file editing being done later for samba and apache and all working brilliantly
I added another network card to the server machine and set it up as a router, where they will be placed once ready the router providing the internet connection doesn't have gigabit ethernet
So I figured if I had gigabit cards in the clients and a gigabit card in the server set up for the internal zone and providing routing, then the clients using it as their router the local stuff would be more responsive, especially as they are using an nfs share for /home
I set the clients up to use the server at 192.168.1.1 for their router and changing their own local ip addresses to suit, i.e. 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3 etc and rebooted
Nis and nfs were no longer working, so I logged on as the local user, ecky, who's home directory isn't in the nfs share but at /ecky, the internet connection worked fine and so did everything else, dns, proxy, etc
I tried changing the nfs share and nis server to the internal card's ip, 192.168.1.1 and that didn't work either
Samba shares work at both 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.1.1, so my problem is that nis logons and nfs mounts don't work from either address
I've tried to give as much info as possible on what I've done without being too confusing ... don't know whether I succeeded
Darned annoying cos it took me a day and a half to get the gigabit card to detect properly in one of the machines...
When I had 11.0, I could ssh to my router without problems. When I switched to 11.2, I no longer could (three machines, one new, two upgraded). I have also tried from a VM 11.1. Putty in another VM also fails.
I have Onboard Realtek ethernet card (eth0) it worked fine but suddenly it stopped working when i see in yast it shows hwinfo not found. when i use hwinfo --netcard it gives realtek card name thats all. I went to yast >lan> edit> hardware and tried to add r8169 module but it was not accepting. previously created ifcfg-eth0 file is available but its not getting up.when i say ifup eth0 it say interface not found. the same messg is also available in /var/log/boot.msg.
i am testing the opensuse 11 installation on the Eee pc (Eee Box B202). My installation source is in the network drive but i can't seem to point it to this destination because the network card is not detected. This Eee pc is using a jmicron network card and i can't seem to find any related drivers on the net.
I just ran a scan of my home folder with avast for linux and it detected multiple instances of 'WMA:Wimad [Drp] . Im pretty sure this is a window based virus so opensuse 11.2 should be actually infected right?
On a small side note is there any point in running a antivirus program on opensuse-do linux viruses exist in the wild? I recently read this Think Linux is free from malware? Think again; it's been hacked. - Computerworld Blogs and this Linux infection proves Windows malware monopoly is over; Gentoo ships backdoor? [updated] | ZDNet
I've seen lots of other issues similar to mine on this forum and others, but had no joy in resolving this problem. I can connect to my router web interface, using both wireless and ethernet cable, but cannot connect to the internet with either.
I can't ping any IP address or hostname. When I type route into the terminal, I get:
Code: Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface default 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0 192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 1 0 0 eth0 loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo default 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0 default 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
There are extra 'default' destinations in there, because of things I have tried from other posts. I have had internet working. It was working for months, but it all stopped working when I installed Skype, vpnc and kvpnc (VPN Client GUI). I don't know if this is just coincidence. I did get connected to my VPN, but shortly after installing Skype, everything outside my local network (i.e. internet and VPN) stopped working.
I'm writing this from another laptop on the local network, so the internet obviously working fine - just not from my own laptop. I'm running openSUSE 11.1 (i586), KDE 4.1.3 "release 4.10.4". And in "sysinfo:/" it says Network Status: "You are online" Like I said, internet doesn't work for both ethernet and wireless. Can't ping anything. I can access router web interface at 192.168.1.1
switched recently to 11.2 and it works fine for me as workstation I want to set up a router separating a part of the network and also acting as a firewall/proxy... Configured 2 Ethernet Interfaces, checked Ip forwarding in Yast but it does not forward the packets from the "internal" to the "external" network. Hovewer after I set up my router as default for machines on internal network I can ping the external interface but no adress on external network (particularly the one of the default router) !!! From the router I can reach both networks and the net via default gateway on external. Tried to:
a) switch firewall completely off b) iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT c) masquarading internal adresses to the external network
my interfaces configuration looks like: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:13:D4:E3:A2:7B inet addr:192.168.1.34 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::213:d4ff:fee3:a27b/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
