I recently upgraded a 11.0 installation running on Xen Server to 11.3. I am experiencing frequent network disconnections now. The ip address and default gateway is assigned statically. However, the system seems to ignore the default gateway after a while. Then after several minutes it seems like it comes back.

When my sessions suddenly die and I have to coax it into routing correctly again.
I installed openSUSE on one of my work system. The network port wasn't working when I was installing, but works fine now (checked in Windows). But for some reason, I am not able to configure the network. I used both Dynamic and Static IPs (both work fine in Windows) but still no go. I am using Yast Control Center for this purpose. I can't even ping the default gateway when I am using custom settings. When I use dynamic settings, it says Unreachable Network.
I have installed eeebuntu NBR on my laptop and it looks great on a 17 inch widescreen. It looks so different from the usual interface that I get people ask about it and I can evangalise without being considered a boring weirdo! Anyway, I have one problem. Every time I boot I have to run the following command. Code: sudo /sbin/route add default gateway 192.168.0.1 How do I get this to happen automatically (as it normally does)?
I've not found how to configure more than one ip address with network manager.Nor with kde nor with plasmoid network manager.I need several virtual ip addresses for eth0 when the "default" of eth0 is connected i.e. "Connected to Auto eth0" should initialize the virtual interfaces.I have not found no even how to configure the ip address.I think this will be used from ifup config in yast or not?There I have the virtual interfaces but they are not taken from network manager.And last but no least: Is it possible that when using network manager the eth0 is enabled even no user has logged in?
I have an Ubuntu box, 11.04 x64, running on a Dual Opteron SFF box (iWill ZMaxDP... pretty old machine). Up until a few weeks ago, it was acting as a Windows 2008 Server, but i moved it to Ubuntu.
Anyway, the machine will not stay on the network for any amount of time, without falling off... I have changed network cards, cables, ports on the switch, etc, and nothing seems to work. I have a Windows 2003 box giving out DHCP addresses, and for a while, i actually tured that off and setup a second Ubuntu box to give IPs... it made no difference. The box gets an IP, and can ping outside for a bit (2 min or so) and then just looses connectivity... ifconfig shows it with an IP (i have tried both Static and DHCP config) and nothing seems to work...
I have a windows installation (partition) but have installed into freespace on the same drive using the auto-partition manager, etc, and everything is fine. I got my network going fairly easily by going Preferences > Wireless and inputting SSID and WPA encryption key (PSK). My router issues an WLAN IP, I can get on the net, I can see my other Windows PCs on the network, I can reach my router, and all is good.So after several hours of mooching about and looking at things, I have updated all the Linux packages via Synaptics (following a prompt to update everything) including GRUB. My dual boot now shows two versions of the OS:
GRUB 1.7~Beta4 Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-19 - generic (I am booting this one) Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14 - generic
I also set up my HP F4580 printer over wifi on the network though with slightly incorrect drivers (for the F4400 series as this was recommended at the closest match). It works, and I can print a test page no problem.The only thing is that now (since doing all that) Ubuntu seems to periodically drop my connection to the network and then request the network PSK again, but when I enter it, it spends time trying to renegotiate but fails, and then re-requests the PSK, over and over and it never reconnects. I have to reboot and then I can connect again (automatically), until it drops at some random point (like 5 or 10 mins later)
I set up the web/backup server for our department and I'm having some major issues. Firstly, the server seems to be dropping the network connection periodically. I checked all of the logs and it appeared to be an IP6 issue as the only message that seemed to correlate with it was "eth0: no IPv6 routers present" in syslog. I added "ipv6.disable=1" to my boot options in menu.lst and this seemed to take care of the problem. However, I woke up this morning and the server was back down.
This didn't seem to take care of the problem. It seems to occur when my automatic backup scripts go through. I have several BASH backup scripts that use rysnc over SSH to backup several computers to the server and the server to my desktop at home. I was able to trigger the problem a couple of times running the backup script this morning. Now, I'm getting the following error when running the script, instead of losing the network connection:
I tried booting with a previous kernel to see if that was the problem and I'm still getting this error. I've searched through all of the logs that I could think of to try to track down any software based problems and I just don't see anything. In the past, whenever I've run into such serious with a Linux box that popped up out of nowhere, it's always been a hardware failure. I've currently disabled all of the backup scripts and I'm going to see if it lasts through the weekend.
We are having an issue where our network connection is dropping on our server. Everything was working for about a month without issues then suddenly we experienced a network outage. Here is what I found in our logs. Rebooting the machine was the only way to have everything come up.

We have the same exact server, running the same exact debian version for over a year with no issues.
using Hardy Heron on a old Thinkpad T41.This is a fresh install system and I noticed it kept dropping wireless connection. After google around, seems like this is a common problem? Then I switched to wired network, and turned out the same thing happens again. Looks like doesn't matter wired or wireless, it kept dropping itself from time to time. fter checking syslog, I found something interesting...it kept complain eth0 is invalid, then it said it found a better connection?I found that extremely weird..

I'm using an Acer Aspire 3000 since Opensuse 9.3. Wireless connection was fine with ndiswrapper. I upgraded to 10.0 and wireless was perfect with the broadcom firmware. Now I just installed openSUSE 11.3 and my wireless connection became a nightmare: connection drops multiple times in a day and network manager remains stuck in "Interface Configuration". Sometimes I'm asked for the wpa password but Network Manager is unable to reconnect until I disable and re-enable my wlan card using the killswitch. The access point is the same zyxel b+g I own since 5 years! I just bought a new eeepc and I installed on it openSUSE 11.3 too. The network connection behaves the same!! The Network Manager says "Interface configuration" and I must switch the wireless off and on to have the network back. I made a radio scan and I'm using a channel on my own. I also tried to disable dhcp without success.
I've been struggeling with this for a few hours now, googleing and so on trying to find an easy way to just switch which device I want as primary for internet connections. After long battles I'm at a loss, this is the current automatic routing

I am trying to install BackupPC on openSUSE 11.4 64 bit.BackupPC is complaining that I am not running the Apache server as user backuppc but as user with id 0 (root)I have the following in the /etc/apache2/uid.conf (which is getting read as I can put a syntax error in the file and it complains):
User backuppc Group www
When I run either the httpd2-itk (default in rcapache2) or the plain httpd2 processes and then do a:
The user reported as running the http processes is root NOT backuppc.On a openSUSE 11.3 machine where I have BackupPC running successfully the ps command returns backuppc as the user running the processes.Is this something others are seeing or do I have some configuration incorrect?
Toshiba A215 laptop Driver is rtl8187 I really need to make the connection constant and non-dropping. I've had opensuse 11.2 since march 7 2010, figured out most of it by lurking and reading threads didn't want to make threads but I really don't know what to do to make this connection stay on. I am posting Terminal commands from when I am both on and offline.
How I attempted to fix this issue myself: I downloaded wireshark, wicd,knetworkmanager. Tried running all of them nothing worked. I went into Yast and switched off networkmanager and went traditional still nothing. Tried adding opendns to traditional. nothing. Went back to NM would get online then after an unknown time I'd lose connection even though NM said i was still connected. Offline running terminal commands from what I read on here in other threads and stickies

In summary, I am using openSUSE 11.2 x64 on an Acer laptop with a wireless AR928X card. I can connect to my WEP-secured network when I boot up. After some time (it might be minutes, it might be hours), I am prompted for my WEP password again. This never works, despite being the one which gets me on-line at start-up!. The only solution is a reboot. The problem is intermittent and doesn't seem to depend on my on-line activity. I have tried the following with the same result: KNetworkManager Traditional using IFUP Enabling / disabling IPv6 support
I tried installing the compat-wireless package through YaST and then managed to get no internet connection at all. Went back to KNetworkManager and things "worked" again until I was prompted for the WEP code. I have openSUSE 11.2 x64 working on my office laptop without problem and can connect to my home network without any problem. My issues are with my personal laptop. I have reached the stage of booting into Windows 7 as my default option so that I can access the internet reliably. What I can do to diagnose and repair the problem - could it be that the card is going into powersave mode? If so, how do I stop that happening? I'd prefer to be on openSUSE but need to be able to rely on the internet.
I loaded up OpenSuSE 11.4 on a HP DL360 G5 64 bit server. When the server boots up, I can connect via the wan or the local network segment. After some time, I will lose the WAN connection. If I ssh back into the computer from another computer the WAN connection can connect again for a period of time. The WAN connect is from the Internet. The firewall is off and so is AppArmor.
I have openSUSE 11.2 installed and i need to create a gateway server that allows virtual private network connections. I want to play with my friends some lan games, but we are in different networks, so i want to create this gateway server so we can connect with VPN clients to this server and play freely.
I'm using OpenSUSE 11.4 and the GNOME 3 packages in the GNOME:STABLE repository. I maintain an application and have a remote Mercurial repo hosted at BitBucket, which requires SSH to do any push/pull operation.
My passphrase is just that -- a phrase, not a word -- and it's too long to type accurately without seeing it. I cut and paste it from a web page. When I'm asked by a console app for the passphrase, I can do that. The GNOME SSH passphrase dialog does not allow pasting or dropping, so I can either try to type it or hit cancel. Normally, ssh-add provided a way around this; it would ask you for the phrase on the console, and I could paste it.
This doesn't work in GNOME 3. ssh-add still asks me for the passphrase, but when I try any operation that requires the key, the dialog pops up again. How is it possible to get ssh-add to work, or (preferably) get rid of the dialog?
Why trying to avoid ranting about my Linksys router, I'll try and keep things short. I have a Linksys router in which the default firmware was terrible and would not correctly renew its DHCP lease. After getting feed up with that I flashed dd-wrt on the router and now it works better but randomly DNS queries would stop being resolved. To rule out the chances that it is my ISPs DNS servers I switched my DNS to openDNS, same problem happens (although I have to admit openDNS is a lot better than what my ISP has).
Anyways I'm about feed up with it and about an inch away from drop kicking the thing out my window. To avoid that I figured I will give it one more change and instead of using my Linksys as my network gateway I'll move all of that to my home server, and make the Linksys just an wireless AP. Besides setting up DHCP, DNS, and iptables on the server is there anything else I will need to know and setup on the server to make this work?
Side note anyone using openSUSE for DHCP know if setting up reserved IPs for certain MAC address is possible?
I have a laptop running OpenSuSE 11.2. I use the Yast menu to set up network settings via "traditional" ifconfig setup (not NetworkManager), because I found NM unusable in prior releases when doing network gymnastics such as router re-flashing, LAN reconfiguration, etc. where I needed control of the IP address, netmask, DHCP, tftp, etc. My laptop works fine with Yast "traditional" ifconfig configuration for eth0 connected to router to Internet. Works fine with Yast ifconfig configuration for USB WiFi as wlan1 to WiFi router to Internet. Also works fine for virtual machines on vmnets NAT-ed to the Internet. Works fine as long as there is only one network connection, that is.
Now, I have a second laptop. I want to network laptop #2 eth0 to laptop #1 eth0 for file transfer and/or Internet access WHILE laptop #1 is is linked to the Internet through wlan1. Unfortunately, I have not figured out how to get Yast/Network Configuration to do that. I have not been able to get Yast/Network Configuration to see both wlan1 and eth0 at the same time--when the Yast utility finishes, I do >ifconfig and >route, and I find that I have lost either eth0 or wlan1. Thus, when I do direct-connect file transfers, I loose the WiFi Internet connection on both machines.
I suspect that it might have something to do with Yast/Network Configuration utility not being able to handle two network interfaces on the host with different IP addresses. how to properly put an OpenSuSE machine on two networks simultaneously? And then how to turn on IP forwarding so that I can use laptop #1's WiFi as an Internet gateway for laptop #2?
Just installed kubuntu 10.10 on a dual boot with winxp on my asus r101 netbook. wireless connects perfectly, but after roughly 30 seconds, i cant access any address or ping an url or ip. however network manager says im still connected. so i click on network manager, and click on the wireless connection, it then reconnects in a couple of seconds, and all is good again. i carry on browsing, and 30 seconds later the same happens again!!! my wireless signal is fairly week, however connection works everytime and in xp this is not an issue.
After entering the command I have lost all ability to even use my wireless ability even if it was for 5 minutes. Now I am using a different kernel, internet still drops every 5 minutes, but would love to get my internet up and running again.
Lately I have been using my window's partition due to the fact that 10.04 drops my wireless signal every 5-10 minutes, but today I downloaded the new updates and that seems to have fix the issue with the dropping of the wireless connection. Now the only problem is the internet is so slow when trying to go to webpages it times out. I have opened up firefox gone to about:config and changed the necessary lines, but still dreadfully slow.
I am having an issue with my wireless connection dropping about every 2 minutes (web pages timing out), then working for a couple of minutes then dropping again. The connection icon in the task bar says I'm still connected at about 70%.I have a dual boot system and the wireless works fine in opensuse but not in Ubuntu 10.10 I have an Asus G50vt-X5 laptop but I am not sure about the wireless chipset.
im on node1 when i type the command ssh node2@ip the terminal hangs up a bit then an error message stating that connection timeout but here is a thing: i cant ping to node2 but i can terminate the ping manually using ctrl+c when i terminate the ping usual message appears stating 10 packets transmitted, 100% loss
ps: when i go to node3 and ssh to node2 it works fine and also i can ping from node3 to node2 very fine. and the firewalls are down at all nodes -all wired connection over a switch
I am running F13 on my Desktop (with a Ralink RT2870 wireless card) and also on my Laptop (Acer Aspire 5738Z) and am connecting to the internet via a NetGear router. On my Laptop I can connect to the internet fine with no problems. However on my Desktop when I turn my computer on it connects to the internet fine, and works, however after some time (maybe 5-10 minutes) it disconnects and the box asking for the password reappears, then I click connect but no joy.
The connection box just keeps reappearing and it won't connect again until I restart the computer (although sometimes it takes more than 1 restart!). This is not a signal issue, as my Desktop also has a Windows partition and that connects to the internet fine and does not drop off. I have installed the RT2870 driver through rpmfusion, which didn't fix the problem, although uninstalling the driver didn't stop the card from working.
Two weeks ago I decided to ditch my XP install completely and switch to Ubuntu 10.04. So far so good, and I'm very happy with my decision. However, about 3 days ago, my wired connection started playing up. It keeps dropping out every 2 hours or so between 13.00 and 04.00. After dropping out, it immediately reconnects again (at least when I use Automatically DCHP config). From 04.00 to 13.00 it is more or less stable.
I tried resolving by reserving an IP in the DCHP Client Table in my router (linksys WRT120N). Additionally, I told the Network Manager to use the Manual configuration. Unfortunately these changes didn't help and the problems stay the same......
The daemon.log shows the following information code...
I've installed Lucid Lynx in both kubuntu and xubuntu variants, and experienced the same problem, (Note I'm also still running 9,04,on the same computer, trouble free). With 10.04, the problem is that sound playback software works initially, but drops the connection with the sound driver randomly, at times varying from a few seconds to a couple of minutes. It seems to happen regardless of whether Alsa or PulseAudio is set as default. This happens with Movie Player, VLC, Audacity, and with Flash in Firefox - they all appear to start normally, with sound, but soon fail. (Again, I don't have this problem with earlier releases, using the same computer) I know little about sound configuration.
I've just loaded the new Hamachi2 Linux beta with Haguichi for a GUI. Everything installed & connects OK, but the connection at the hub is dropping & reconnecting every minute or so. I tried adding a line to the sshd_config file to keep it alaive but it didn't make a difference.
