OpenSUSE Network :: OS 11.2: Cannot Now Access Internet
Feb 4, 2010
Is there a network trouble shooting guide for OS 11.2 that I could follow? I've shot myself in the foot so I should try to fix it.
I changed the DNS server addresses and the number of IP addresses on my router. I then set my Linux system to use static IP addressing and edited the network settings for my network adapter accordingly. I can now no longer get to any web-site.
By contrast, I also updated 1 of my Windows computers in a similar way; it continues to work without problem.
I installed 11.3amd64 as a VM under Vista/VMWare Player - all worked fine. I have now installed it as a physical system. It nstalled cleanly BUT during first boot it could not access the repos. With each repo it gave the message
- download (curl) error for (repo) - error code connection failed - error message could not resolve host (repo)
This was followed by a message box containing
- UI syntax error - no widget with ID 'contents
Firefox could not access the internet (cannot find server) until I disabled IPV6 (I used about:config), now it works fine. I think the repos problem is because of IPV6 - I usually have trouble with IPV6. I tried disabling IPV6 with the following (How To Disable ipv6 on SuSE Linux | Linux Poison)
I have a desktop computer running OpenSUSE 11.2 with two network cards installed. I would like to use both cards for connecting to the internet using different networks. The setting would be the following: eth0 is the main (default) card, almost all programs should use this NIC for connecting to the internet. eth1 is used only by a few programs, which have setting for selecting which network interface to use. The two NIC's are connected to different networks, so the IP address of the NIC's, the related subnet masks and gateways are also different.
Saying short, I would like to have the two NIC's as they would be in two separate computers. I can set the IP address and subnet mask of the NIC's. The main problem is that I can only declare one gateway. How can i setup this? I do not use network manager, I configure network cards using yast, but if needed I can of course use ifconfig directly.
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
I am trying to get internet connection on Open Suse 11.2 through my wireless connection. I can connect to my network but there is no internet connection. The internet connection does work with other Linux distros and with Windows 7 laptop and Windows XP machines. I tried turning off the firewall but still no connection. What is even stranger is I can ping Google but in Firefox I cannot go to Google.
I'm kinda new to this, and usually i get help from a computor technician at school. BUT sins its Saturday, i cant get any help, and i realy need it. Well my problem is that i cant get any internet access using eth0 at my computer. I dont know what i have done wrong, if i have done anything wrong, it just reinstalled. ANd i dont know how to config it.
OpenSUSE 11.3 x64 KDE I dont know what happened it is a new install thats been running for 2 weeks . Now for some reason I can not access the internet or the router. Samba is working with Dolphin I can browse shares on local network both Windblows and Linux and ping local IP's. But I can NOT ping my router (the default gateway IP) with this box or access it with firefox so no internet. A VirtualBox of XP Pro running on this box has no problems with its bridged adapter getting out and seeing the router. I disabled the firewall, added gateway IP to network settings, disabled ipv 6 from the get go, added service provider dns's to nameservers tried opendns servers also.
Brand new to the OpenSuse project. I'm have an old AMD Duron running 11.3 and I am having no luck in connecting to the www. I'm using a D-Link usb wireless adapter. I seem to have an IP address for the PC. here is the print from ifconfig:
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...
Code: linuxthinkpad:/var/log # /sbin/route Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1 link-local * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth1 loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
recently ran into a problem with my internet access. Im using open suse 11.2 on a Dell Vostro 1520 laptop. I managed to get my wlan running and i can use firefox to access my router. In my router the laptop is also showing as connnected, dhcp reserved an ip for it.However if i try to browse the internet, no page is loading, actually no software that needs access to the web is working.
i've installed opensuse 11.3 x86_64 and everything works great. after install updates and restart i cannot access internet from wireless connection. Knetworkmanager says it is connected, i have a dhcp ip, gateway, and cannot access internet.... i tried to configure from yast and cannot access internet...
I need to implement at my sister this kind of connection: She is connected on Local area network that has about 50-80 pc's, but for internet access she must start an pppoe connection. For now when she wants to use lan she must put her local address (ps: they dont have dhcp), for pppoe she uses dhcp. Problem is that on that way she can't access lan and internet at the same time. She must disconnect from lan and then start pppoe connection and vice versa. I'm intrested if it is possible to have lan access at the same time as internet access. some kind of tunel through lan up to isp. I was googling little and so PPPoE tunneling. Is it that what I need here?
I've been running Suse 11.2 KDE on a 64-bit Dell Studio 1535 since last week's release, and have had no trouble using Firefox. At some point today, however, it stopped accessing webpages -- or, when managing to grab a page, it would do so without full html rendering. 95% of the time I get an error splash, while the other 5% I get some sort of truncated page that looks nothing like it should. Konquer and Opera work fine, as does KMail.
I tried deleting the profile.int file (no luck), then uninstalled/re-installed (no luck), then uninstalled and deleted every Mozilla/Firefox file I could find in order for a fresh install -- but this has not worked after several attempts. I still cannot get Internet access. How to completely wipe-out Firefox in order to allow for a totally new installation?
Recently i started going into OSes other than Windows. So, i installed openSUSE 11.3 32bit on my system in dual boot with Windows7 32bit. Everything was okay But i couldn't find any drivers for my laptop. My problems are :
1. cannot access NTFS drives. 2. cannot connect to the internet through LAN 3. cannot connect to the internet through Wireless.
Computer's Configuration : Dell Inspiron 14r Intel Corei3 processor Both the operating systems run fine otherwise
I'm trying to setup a wireless AP with my old asus eeepc, so it can act as a repeater to connect my android device on the other end of the apartment. I've already created the Wireless Access Point using hostapd. It took very little configuring, just changed from mode 'a' to 'g' and changed the channel from 60 to 1 and It was all set. Next I setup a dhcp server. Also simple enough using yast.
Up to this point, I was able to connect my android device to the newly created wireless network. However It doesn't have internet access. I guess I have to configure iptables for this, but I find it incredibly confusing! Here are a few specs to help with any examples: The laptop is connected to the internet through eth0 with IP 192.168.2.120 Hostapd is using wlan0, and I'm pretty sure it created mon.wlan0 So, to sum up, when I connect my android device to the network I can, for instance, see what ever pages apache is currently serving on the laptop, but can't access the internet.
I would like to be able to monitor which programs are allowed to access the internet, but a search for programs to do this has turned up nothing. Preferably, I would like a notification to come up every time an application uses the internet. Is there any (n00b friendly) software available to do that?
Just today I installed opensuse 11.3 on my Compaq CQ61. Even though I am able to connect to networks (both with an ethernet cable and wireless) I don't have internet access. I have used opensuse for a very brief period in the past and I had no such problem.
I want to connect to a wireless open ad-hoc network to have internet access. It worked a while ago (1/2 year or something) but some update must have messed something up so it doesn't work any longer. Situation: There is a laptop that is running windows 7 and is connected to the internet via cabel. A open ad-hoc network is configuered with sharing of internet connection, status of the ad-hoc network is "waiting for users to connect". I want to connect with a second laptop that is running ubuntu 11.04. I can find the network and connect to it.
Problem: I cannot get any internet access while being connected to the ad-hoc network. So my questions are: how can i find out if what causes the Problem? I suspect a driver issue, but I'm not sure. required information from Howto post a wireless issue:
I've a laptop which is connected to ethernet. I want to access internet from my N900 through wifi( available on Laptop). So i created adhoc network on laptop and connected my smart phone to it. But i still cannot access Internet from my phone. Where am I going wrong?? or is there another way to acces internet from my phone via laptop?
PS: I followed the procedure given in this link to create an adhoc network.
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 am attempting to connect Ubuntu 9.10 to the Internet.I have a network connection, and Karmic detects it fine. I can ping addresses within our network (e.g. the Windows computer in the next room), and I can ping the router, but if I ping, say www.google.com, it says "Destination Net Unreachable". Previously, in Jaunty, I had a similar problem.I found a workaround: launch Pidgin. Somehow, launching Pidgin temporarily edits my configuration. However, in Karmic, I have no access to Pidgin, however, and Empathy does not do the same thing. Since I have no Internet, I cannot "sudo apt-get install" anything.How can I get the Internet working?
I'm using debian lenny.When I boot with kernel 2.6.36, ping always respond with Network is Unreachable. But when I boot with kernel 2.6.26 it works. I can't even ping the dafault router of 2.6.26 kernel when I am at 2.6.36. Also, system/administration/network does not show any connections while it shows something at the other kernel.
Background infoMy laptop (MySN MG6.c) is dual-booted with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10, and connected to the internet through a router (Digitus DN-11004-O), which is set-up to use DHCP. The internet connection works fine under Windows, and my previous laptop, which also ran Ubuntu 9.10, had no problems connecting to the internet through that router.The network adapter is an Atheros AR8131 PCI-E (also detected as Attansic under Ubuntu)stem infoResults from running various diagnostics (I have removed the output that relate to the wireless connection, as I don't use it):
Code: $ uname -a Linux valyria 2.6.31-14-generic-pae #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 16 15:22:42 UTC 2009 i686
I'm trying to configure internet access using KDE network manager. Added new VPN pptp connection, set gateway and other options but manager tries to connect for about a minute and breaks then. Here is /var/log/daemon.log
Code: Jul 1 17:35:22 dvinokurov-desktop NetworkManager: <info> Starting VPN service 'org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.pptp'... Jul 1 17:35:22 dvinokurov-desktop NetworkManager: <info> VPN service 'org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.pptp' started
As I understand the main problem is in "(IP Config Get) timeout exceeded".
Configuration: Kubuntu 10.04 x86, VPN server with MSCHAPV2 auth, no compression, no encrypting.
I have had a heck of a time trying to get my laptop running ubuntu to connect to my home network. I have managed to get it to work at my university which would seemingly be more difficult than getting it to work at home, so I know for a fact it isn't a hardware or driver issue. If I try to connect via ethernet cable from my router, it detects that I connected the cable but says "disconnected" and never lets me connect. If I SKIP the router and go from my modem directly to my laptop via ethernet cable it works great.
Using the wireless network tool I can see all of the wireless connections in my area. When I go to connect to my network it prompts me for the WEP key and when I enter it and hit connect it just keeps cycling and eventually times out and finally again prompts me for my WEP key. I know this network works as it works just fine on my Windows 7 partition. Another interesting note - both my wireless and ethernet connections both worked flawlessly and stoopid easily on the live cd but don't after the full install.
If I manually enter in the information for my wireless through IPv4 settings and enter in the Address,Netmask and gateway I can connect to my network - but then I have no active internet connection. Same deal with my wired connection. Is this because choosing this manual method grays out the DHCP?
I am trying to connect to the college campus wifi network, but having difficulties in Linux.I am dual-booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10, and I use Google Chrome web browser on both. When I boot into Windows, my laptop connects to the network (as I can see from the taskbar icon) and I can (and currently am) connect in Chrome.However, in Ubuntu, it connects (or so the icon indicates) but Chrome doesn't load any pages.The campus network is unsecured, but once you open the browser, you are prompted with a log-in page (student ID and password) to actually connect.Here is my output for iwconfig:
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:"sjsu_campus" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: 00:24:6C:BC:D3:E0 Bit Rate=54 Mb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Okay, a couple of weeks ago I was running 10.04, got an auto update that needed a firefox restart, so rather than restart, I just shutdown the computer for the weekend. When I booted the computer on Monday it would find sites (www.google.com, start.ubuntu.com) but it wouldn't download the necessary items to load the page. Now I have a windows laptop sitting next to the ubuntu box and it was online with no issues, so I know it wasn't the connection itself. So I decided that the update messed up the system so I downloaded 10.10 and installed that and ran that all last week.
On Friday I got a system update that required a firefox restart, so I ran firefox for the day and decided that since it was friday, I would just shutdown the computer and reboot on Monday.Well now Monday is here and now I again have sloooowww internet, to the point that URL.. times out and won't come up. I have tried doing a traceroute on both machines and the windows box gets all the way to www.google.com, but the ubuntu box gets about halfway there and then gets no response. I am at a loss, I don't want to reinstall every week. I did try to reboot and run the previous version of 10.10 that shows in the boot menu, but that does the same thing. One thing I did notice is that the broadcast ip is different than the machine IP, don't know enough to know if this is a problem.
