OpenSUSE Network :: Lost Internet Connection After Upgrade
Jun 21, 2010
After having updated unconditionally all packages in Kde-desktop-factory-repository to get the latest version 4.4.4, I can no longer connect to the Internet through Knetworkmanager. I receive the the following message from a pop-up window when clicking on the Knetworkmanager icon
Code: KNetworkManager cannot start because the installation is misconfigured.System DBUS policy does not allow it to provide user settings; contact your system administrator or distribution.KNetworkManager will not start automatically in future.I tried opening Knetworkmanager in a terminal as root user through 'su' but received the following message:
Code:# knetworkmanager knetworkmanager(2331): KUniqueApplication: Cannot find the D-Bus session server:"Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."
I played with the Network Settings section in YaST, because I wanted to use the wireless network card I installed into the PCI port. OpenSUSE recognised the type of card and its MAC number, and told me that I needed to install a firmware (fwcutter something). I tried some changes on the cable internet connection (like activate on plugged) while I tried to change the wireless connection (like activate on boot).
What I have now is that my cable internet connection is not working at all (it was working just 3 days ago), my wireless internet connection is, as always, not working either. I managed to work the wireless card on Windows XP by finding its drivers.
Since the problem is with my office computer, I cannot answer the exact brand names of the ethernet card and wireless card. Shall I reinstall OpenSUSE 11.3 from the DVD I have?
Second problem: OpenSUSE does not recognise my external harddisk, it gives an error about mounting the device.
After i install it i lost my internet connection . i got a message " Wired Network " " you work offline ". i use cable ADSL ,.... my Pc information HP Pavilion 6700 running with both Window 7 & Ubuntu 10.10 note... my network connection work correctly on W7.
OpenSuse 11.4 Asus Netbook 1000H Following other members in the forums I have installed Opensuse 11.4 on the Netbook. In the early days Ubuntu Netbook Remix worked well for me. But this has been discarded, and the "one size fits all" Ubuntu had become slow and cumbersome. So..... onto my post. Opensuse is working well. The install went beautifully.
It detected the Wireless Internet and I am able to get on line. I also need to share the Internet connection to a desktop. This is done via a small network switch. Thus far I cannot do this. I tried to use ifup to configure a static ip but this busted my Wireless configuration. I went back to knetwork manager. Then I tried to set up the wired network using knetwork manager and under IPV4 "share" the connection. But this blanks out any possiblity of a static address and substitutes dhcp. My desktop cannot ping the this dhcp address. Ubuntu had this thing called Firestarter? - from memory. This configured the system to sharing the network.
I'm new in SUSE 11.4. My problem is: I'm using Alfa AWUS036H card. It's recognised and I can establish connection to my network, but cant get to Internet. I can't surf the web cos Firefox tell me that connection is timed out. Now I'm confused why I can't surf the web even if I'm connected. Also, I trayed to instal linux drivers for this card folloving Ubuntu "how to" and it just dont work.
It is just 3 days that I am using Linux Opensuse 11.2. I got a problem with Internet connection: I have HUWAEI E1550 3G Modem, but I have no idea about using it on Linux OpenSuse 11.2. Now I use it Windows7, there is no problem, because there is a program and driver for modem.
I have problem after install opensuse 11.2 on lenovo R61. I have no connection to internet, although on liveCD (opensuse 11.2) is internet connection functional. In ubuntu or opensuse 11.1 was all OK, connection was functional.- at DSL Configuration / Ethernet Card is Unknown device- in hardware is Card: 82566MC Gigabit Network Connection (eth0)- modprobe wl write it FATAL: Module wl not found.
I had work well with opensuse 11 and the internet also work well but when I turn off my computer and then use the XP and work with it. I find out the connection with the internet doesn't work in the opensuse 11. I made a repair and format to opensuse 11 but without any change the net still doesn't work.
CPU Pentium4 Motherboard Gigabyte intel 945 S-series Dial up connection I have no experience with opensuse.
I recently took a WIRED internet connection (from the people who provide cable TV) and switched from ubuntu to openSUSE11.2. . I am not able to set up an internet connection in openSUSE 11.2. I have been given a static IP, and the following info
subnet mask gateway dns server alternate dns server
how do i setup an internet connection with these in openSUSE 11.2.
Dell Precision Workstation running Suse 11.1 & KDE 3.5 as default O/S, with Suse 11.3 KDE4, Ubuntu 10.04 & Win XP Pro as secondary O/S's.Medion PC with Win XP Pro for those windows apps I have to use (against better judgement but because my clients require it!)
On Friday 6th I was having a play with Apache2 running on the Dell Precision on Suse 11.1. I have had a local development webserver for some time to test websites before uploading them a host server. I had wanted to test the DHCP & DNS functions for some time, and this seemed like a good opportunity. But I ran into some problems and decided to un-install the DHCP & DNS. I intended to install a VM and re-install the Apache server on it, to make it easier to troubleshoot.Unfortunately my internet connection on that box is now broken, but only with the Suse 11.1 install. The other 3 O/S's all work fine, and the rest of my machines are all good. In fact the Suse 11.1 install can communicate across the LAN, and print to both the network printers, it just won't connect to the Internet. Turning off the firewall doesn't do anything, and reconfiguring the NIC in YaST doesn't help.
I suspect that there is a config file somewhere with faulty info, but I can't find it. If searched everything that was changed on that date.I have been searching this forum, LinuxQuestions forums, and Googling for 2 days with no real success. I found some interesting threads which I thought would help but so far no luck. I can ping all the interfaces on my LAN, but anything outside is blocked. I thought it might be in the BT HomeHub but that works fine and all the boxes can connect except with the Precision running 11.1.
Version 11.2 worked all right. After installation of 11.3 the internet can no longer be reached. I formatted the system partition but not the home partition.Here is the shortened output of the script netinfo:
Code: Linux kernel: Linux 2.6.34-12-desktop x86_64 LSB Version:n/a
I installed 11.04 via live install, and was connected to my home network/Internet. After the install finished and I restarted my pc, my network was not available nor internet connection. In the network manager I cannot access the "wired network" tab.
I have a pppoe dial-up ADSL internet connection and I've managed to set it up untill 11.4. Now, I've installed smpppd-1.60.46-2.1.x86_64.rpm and the dependencies. When I try to activate and check the work of smpppd, the following happens:
Code: linux-xjr1:~ # service smpppd start Starting SMPPPD done linux-xjr1:~ # chkconfig smpppd on insserv: FATAL: service network is missed in the runlevels 2 to use service smpppd insserv: exiting now! /sbin/insserv failed, exit code 1 linux-xjr1:~ # chkconfig -list smpppd smpppd 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
Qinternet doesn't connect to the internet. It seems that something went wrong with smpppd, didn't it?
I keep losing internet connectivity from within OpenSuse. I've had ubuntu/kubuntu beforeand never had a problem. I installed opensuse and now after a few minutes of browsing I'll lose my internet connection.I also dual boot into winXP without any problems.I noticed that when the connection is lost I can't even reach my router - which is where I'm getting the wired connection from.So it's not just the outside internet but the local network too. It only happens within opensuse.
I've installed opensuse 11.2 on an old IBM thinkpad. The install went without a hitch and when I got to the desktop I inserted my Dlink DWL-G132 wireless USB adapter. Opensuse immediately recognised that a wireless device was attached and I could see my wireless network listed. I entered my WPA password and was able to connect to my routers configuration page by entering 192.168.0.1 in the URL bar of firefox. For some reason I am unable to navigate to any webpage. When I enter a URL firefox acts as though there is no internet connection. The only way I can get the internet on my laptop is to connect it to my router with a cable. I used a wired connection and ran the update utility thinking that perhaps an update would fix the issue but it did not. I know the adapter works because the laptop used to have windows xp installed and I could connect fine with that.
Does anyone here have any idea why I would be able to connect wirelessly to the routers configuration page but not to the internet? I appreciate any advice anyone may have.
I have just installed OPENSUSE 11.3 (32 bit) on a pc. I am brand new to OPENSUSE. I have connected a network cable from a router that previously connected a Windows XP machine to a home wired network/internet connection. The computer shows network connectivity, but when I launch Firefox it cannot find the OPENSUSE URL or any other such as my ISP. Do I need to install or activate some LINUX application to make the OPENSUSE system see the network /internet connection? I can't seem to find any application in the basic OPENSUSE installation that addresses this. Is there some kind of firewall that needs to be dealt with?
I have a ppoe internet connection. I was easier and faster to configure it in Yast than in Windows XP. When The provider here sometimes goes through some problems and the connection may disappear and return at any unexpected moment. In Windows there is a icon on system tray that dysplays such information and I know when the connection is gone. It also allows me to try to reconnect manually. Where do I find these information on Opensuse here do I manage to reconnect. In Windows it was also possible to set the connection to re-dial automatically when it was out. It was very useful if it failed in the middle of a download, the system reconnected and the download manager retried until download resumed. Is there some way to adjust opensuse to reconnect automatically when connection fails or some software that does it? Furthermore, is there a good download manager that works in Opensuse that pause, accelerates downloads and retries when connection fails?
I am using vmware player 3.1.3 and mounted in it an .iso of OpenSuse 11.3. Everything works fine, except the internet connection. For example, when I try to go to a website with firefox the page never displays. What do I have to do, so that the internet works?
I have installed opensuse 11.4 xen on a HP ML115 G5 AMD Opteron server, which previously hosted a fully working opensuse 11.3 xen. The problem seems to be that br0 is not showing as a bridge device in network settings. When I first installed opensuse 11.4 networking was available via dhcp, I then installed the xen tools and answered the prompt to create a bridge, it was only when I re-booted the system that I lost my network connection.
Going back into network settings I compared the settings to an existing working opensuse 11.3 xen install that I have and noticed that br0 is not showing as a bridge device in network settings so cannot be selected, in fact no bridged devices are shown.
I have recently moved countries and have finally got my internet connected today after a lengthy wait. I have a pretty fast connection - it's a fibre connection at approx 100Mbps Between my onu (modem) & computer (Lenovo SL510) I have a cisco wrt120N wireless router. I'm using Opensuse 11.3 (also dual boot with Win7)
My problem is . . . When I enter url in firefox (4) I get the message "looking up www. . ." for approx 5 to 15 seconds before anything starts to load. I also have the same behaviour in konqueror, firefox and yast software manager.
If I use Google Chrome the pages load instantly. Even never before visited pages.
A typical webpage such as Stuff.co.nz - Latest New Zealand News & World News, Sports News & NZ Weather Forecasts takes approx 20 to thirty secs to load in firefox and 3 seconds in Chrome. I can see the same behaviour always whether Chrome used first or firefox used first - so cache does not appear to be the issue.
If I boot into Win7 - websites load instantly there also.
I have updated to the latest wireless drivers for my system - but the behaviour is also evident if I attach a lan cable.
Here is a little info
Code: /sbin/ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 60:EB:69:AE:C6:28 UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
From version 11.3 to 11.4 now often occurs after a problem has already become annoying! My computer connects to internet through a router and sometimes after about 4, 5 hours going through the browser so I cannot reach Google or someone else's server Skype only stays connected!
This is not a hardware problem occurs because even after changing the router and the computer problem remains! When this happens the router has access to the Internet and other computer via wifi can connect without a problem! How to figure out where the problem comes? I attach the output of dmesg:
I upgraded from 11.2 to 11.3, and now I can't seem to get my network/internet connection working. I am using a router and a cable modem, and the connection is of course DSL. I am using wpa2 for security. I can't even FIND where to enter my wpa2 key. When I upgraded from 10.x to 11.2, there was no such problem.
I just did a large patch on my opensuse11.3 system (upgrade of all installed packages), and whilst my network interface works, I cannot get past my router onto the internet.
I can connect to other computers on my network (here at home), I have an IP address via dhcp from my router, but I cannot get internet access, either from thunderbird, firefox, or simply by [URL] Clearly the computer was connected to the internet just fine minutes before since I did the large patch! Also, my other computers CAN still connect to the internet.
how i can debug it? It is just too coincidental I have upgraded everything and now somethings amiss!
If it's relevant, my router is a netgear WGR614v9.
A few things I've tried...
