Cool Solutions: HOW-TO: Set Up a SUSE 10 Machine As a Router
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.
I am totally new to Linux and have just installed ubuntu 10.10. After configuring the network interface via dhcp I started getting these messages that come in so frequently I can't configure anything else.
Why I am getting this messages and more importantly how do I get rid of them.
I am trying to configure my IPv6 network. My computers are behind a Fedora gateway IPv6-configured, which is working great. But for computers inside my network, it seems I am getting only internal addresses from DHCP. Here is my ifconfig for an internal computer:
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.
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.
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.
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.
I use openSuse 11.xx and all was going fine until yesterday. When booting up now, I can't connect to the internet any more. I takes much longer to boot now as if openSuse tries to look for something that disappeared or got corrupt. All started with the latest safety update.
I tried to connect to the huawei cdma EC325 modem. using the network manager applet.

i've just installed opensuse 11.2 everything is working fine but i'm unable to connect to the internet through my adsl modem the network is shown to be active but after i configure the dsl connection i can't see any option from where to connect
