Cool Solutions: HOW-TO: Set Up a SUSE 10 Machine As a Router
I was having a problem with cairo dock, asked on the board how to resolve was told to reinstall the visual driver for my monitor since I have an ati vid card since with the updated kernal u have to reinstall those drivers(didn't know that, I'm new to opensuse). I thought I did that before so I completely uninstalled it so I could then do a fresh reinstall but I wasn't paying attention and my laptop was unplugged for a while. I stepped away while the install was going on and my laptop died.
I tried plugging it in but had to restart my laptop when I did I got the command line rows and when I tried to start GDM it wouldn't start, I did so as SU. Attempted to connect to the internet via networkmanager and couldn't get wifi or wired to work. Anyway I can access my desktop visually just so I can start yast and install the driver or will I have to reinstall 11.2 or use the cd to repair? If so how do I use the cd to repair?
I've installed the Ubuntu 10.04 Server onto a PPC G4 Mac just for the experience of setting up a server. During the installation process Ubuntu couldn't auto-configure my DHCP Network. I'm using the airport card on a wireless network. How can I manually configure the network once Ubuntu is installed.
i don't know the proper commands to list my system information. Up until recently, the internet worked fine, but suddenly stopped. I opened up YaST2 and found that the network device was set up to never turn on, and i switched it to "at boot time" but it still doesn't work.
For strange reasons I was stuck without an Internet connection for about 2 hours. I couldn't establish a connection, even local network only via DHCP. This was on Natty. After 30mins passed, I rebooted to Maverick only to get the same results. With nothing else to do, one hour after, I booted into Windows XP to play Dragon Wars 2. Lo and behold! I had Internet connection. At first I thought it was a technical problem with my ISP. So I rebooted hurriedly to Natty and after several minutes of trying to coax Network Manager for a damn fre*kin* connection it still couldn't.
Back again to XP, I couldn't believe that I wasn't experiencing some kind of on/off signal from my ISP. It wasn't just a coincidence that I could connect on XP and not on Natty. The connection was fine! And I've reason to believe for the past 2 hours, my ISP wasn't the culprit. .. this time it was on my end.Now - on Natty - I manually configured the connection (Instead of DHCP) to be greeted with the familiar Connection Established prompt from notify-OSD.
I installed Suse 11.2 on clean HD. I cannot connect to the internet. Seems like Suse didn't install drivers for on board ethernet card. It is a Marvell Yukon 88E8056. I'm new to this and don't know how to install the drivers.
I left my laptop on stand by and today on the morning I could wake up my laptop so I turn it of the manua way. When I start again, I notice there is something going wrong It said to me I don't have internet. I check the modem and yes I have internet, I check the lan cable and it looks it works fine. So I thought it was the ethernet card that was bad. So I restar again and enter with Windows 7, and yes I have internet. So it made be one problem of my Ubuntu. I did an ifconfig and got the following
the thing is that I cant use Network Manager to connect to Internet, because it simply do not connect. The connection, although, awailable throught yast when i choose "traditional method with ifup", so everything is just fine, but if i need to reconnect, i have to reboot. How do I setup a !working! connection through Network Manager, or maybe i do not do something properly.
In short: browsing the internet with domain names does not work. The long version: I've configured my network with DHCP and ifup. Ping works on my internal net and with servers in the internet. Dig work's too! I get the right IP to the requested domain. When i try to access the internet using firefox or even wget i get an DNS error. For example wget is showing the following error: Resolving heise.de... failed: Name or service not known. wget: unable to resolve host address 'heise.de'
Again dig show me the right IP and if i add the entry to /etc/hosts it work's too! I've even tried it with manually setup of ip address, nameserver and default gateway but with the same result. Switching off the firewall has no effect on this problem, too.
I install from openSUSE-11.3-NET-x86_64.iso. Installation was succesfull, but after install all packet on test internet / update was error. And after log in in installed system internet not work. I use router with DHCP
I installed 11.2 on an older HP Laptop which was running XP without any issues. Durring the install, the update processe failed (presumably unble to connect to respository). I am usind a wired connection and the nic is connecting to my router and is recieving an address via DHCP. I am also able to ping the workstion from the router's Web interface. However I am unbale to connect to the internet.I have turned off the Suse firewall via Yast and checked the settings against another computer running ver 11.1 .Everything appears to be correct but no joy.
So here is what I am trying to do. I want to connect my Open Suse 11 machine to the internet. I am almost there.
1. I configured my network card and eth0 is up.
2. I configured my DSL with user name and password and I am authenticated.
3. An IP address is assigned to me and the DNS servers are retrieved.
However I cannot ping or visit any website I use the YAST automatic configuration and kinternet to connect. Here are the gritty details
I do see that kinternet has trouble reading /etc/resolv.conf. It says 'permission denied' although read permissions are set on both /sbin/route and the path that it links to. This should not matter however since the existing entries are already there and valid. I also tried to turn off the firewall suspecting it could be a problem.
So I am being authenticated successfully ( verified with the logs ); assigned an IP; the route seems ok; firewall seems ok. But I cannot browse or do internet things I have been tweaking settings for 3 days now and all seems in vain. Do enlighten me on what I am doing wrong. I bet its something silly that I overlooked. I have had success configuring the same thing in red hat linux and browsing the internet without trouble. Is there something OpenSuse specific that I am missing ?
since installing opensuse 11.2 KDE, is that I can connect to the local resources when I'm not connected via the pptp vpn to the Internet but as soon as I establish an Internet connection, I cannot. Under Windows and other distros I've tried, this has never been an issue, usually I can connect to either local or Internet resources, interchangeably. In a nutshell, I don't know how to troubleshoot this.
I just finished a brand new install of 11.2 on a workstation and it can't connect to the internet at all. I can ping Google and I can ping devices on my local network but I can't browse any web pages. I am able to ping the workstation with my windows 7 workstation. I tried disabling the firewall. I have it set to use DHCP.
I can connect to google via IP. So it appears to be a DNS type issue, is there some settings I am missing?
installed openSUSE 11.3 and round that both wireless and ethernet connections could connect ok to my router but couldnt access the internet. I think its a bug because I didn't have this issue in previous versions of openSUSE.
The solution is to go into the ip settings in the wireless configuration, select the option to manually assign ddresses (not DCHP) and
- enter the ip address of your router in the default gateway and DNS server addresses
- manually assign an ip address to your computer rather than have the router do it
- it has to be in the same range as your router -n normally 192.168.1.x where x can be any number not already used.
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 don't know whats happened but yesterday when i logged in i was unable to load any web pages. Today login and the same.ifconfig shows connection, I can ping whoever i want just can't get any web pages to load, can't even login to my Thomson router. Have tried with firefox, google chrome and konquerer
I have an Intel Mac that I recently added openSUSE 11.3 to to have a dual-boot system. This has been working fine for me for the last 5-6 months. Then on 1/18/2011 I shutdown my system and totally disconnected everything and moved it all out of my office, so new carpeting could be installed. After it was installed, I reconnected everything and confirmed that everything on my Mac side works just fine. Then I rebooted into Linux and everything worked until I tried to run Firefox to connect to the internet. I'm told every time that it could not connect to the server for whatever I tried to connect to. I AM NEW TO LINUX AND ANY KIND OF NETWORK/INTERNET PROBLEMS, SINCE I'M USED TO MAC WHERE EVERYTHING JUST WORKS. But, I did click on "computer" in the lower left-hand side of the menu bar at the bottom of the screen. This shows on the right-hand side under STATUS "Network: none" and then it states to click this to get it started or connected (I don't remember which) so I click it. This brought up a window asking me for my password and then a new window where it went through a checklist of things and presented me my network settings, which means nothing to me. However, after this I tried Firefox again with not luck.
yesterday I installed pulseaudio and pavumeter. This morning I couldn't connect to the internet anymore. I checked the settings but couldn't see any changes. I read the post at [URL]?t=370108 and I'm going to post the outcome of the instructions here:
I'm going to load ubuntu server to a computer just for testing and learning. There is one ethernet card on this computer that will only be used occasionally to connect to the internet. This computer will not have any computers or routers connected to it. So my question is, once installed and running, will DHCP just sit quietly and wait for a request or is it going to complain a lot that it is not finding any other computers?
I have a home network, with an OpenWrt router operating successfully as DHCP server (using DNSMasq). I'm planning to install LinuxMCE on my main fileserver and in order for this to properly detect devices around the home it requires that it is the DHCP server. That would be fine except that I sometimes power down the fileserver (eg. when my in-laws sleep in the spare room where the server lives) and that would leave me with no DHCP which creates problems (when my in-laws want to get their laptop connected to the internet).
One answer is to get new in-laws which would be OK except that I'm still pretty keen on my wife. Alternatively is there any way to set up a fallback DHCP server ie. the router would check if there's a functioning DHCP server on the network (ie. the fileserver) and if it gets no response it will serve DHCP addresses itself.
My Ubuntu 9.10 (64 bit regular old desktop version) machine has two NICs, eth0 and eth1. eth0 does not connect to my router (and thus the Internet) automatically. I have to manually click on it in the NetworkManager applet after every reboot.
Internet connection sharing has also been impossible. I gave up trying to do that after about 2 weeks. I was simply trying to share my Internet connection with a Windows XP machine over eth1, but it never worked. I could ping one machine from the other, but couldn't get to the Internet from the Win XP machine.
Removing NetworkManager may be the ticket. Most of the tutorials for Internet connection sharing tell you to enter commands in the console. Maybe one of them will work once I remove the NetworkManager applet.
