I just finished installing Fedora 12 on a rack mount server. I was modifying the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file to use a static IP address, but now nothing works. The device does not boot on start up or anything.Currently, ifcfg-eth0 looks like:
DEVICE=eth0 ONBOOT=yes BOOTPROTO=none[code].....
The eth0 device does not start on boot; the server does not get the IP address, is not reachable over the network, and will not connect to the internet....
I made a brief foray into IceWM g which I used tradition ifup" instead of KNetworkManager. I switched back to KDE and even though I have re-enabled "user controlled with network manager" KNetworkManager still doesn't run at KDE login. The connection's fine and I can start it up myself and it works.What is the best way to set it back to run at login so I'm automatically connected to the network?
Last night while setting up wired & wireless connection in openSuse 11.2 Gnome version via YAST's ifup, I got wireless but lost wired connection (interface eth0). Dmesg shows that eth0 became eth1. I cannot get eth0 back. Is there any way to remedy this situation, eg. get info from the Ubuntu partition in my triple-boot laptop, without having to re-install openSUSE?
I'm new to this forum site and I was wondering how can I bridge a network between the eth0 and wlan0 connections?my eth0 NIC is a RealTek RTL8111B 10/100/1000 Ethernet Card (OnBoard) and my wlan0 NIC is a RealTek RTL8187B 802.11b/g WiFi USB Adapter Card.Are there any utilities, such as bridge-utils that I can use, except for Firestarter since Firestarter states that the eth0 connection is not established, or do I right-click on the network icon and select Edit Connections and go to Auto eth0 and under the IPv4 Address setting and select Shared to other computers and run a live connection there?The main reason is that I need an Internet connection for my Xbox 360, which is connected to my Linksys WRT54G 802.11b/g Wireless Router, that has DD-WRT firmware installed and 4 WiFi hotspots for any wireless device, such as my PSP, DS, DS Lite, Wii, Laptop(s), my brother's PC (needs a WiFi card), and my dad's PC (needs either a WiFi card or an Internet connection from my brother's computer to my dad's PC)

I tried to update my fully-working 64-bit 11.1 system to 11.2. I used the network install and chose the Update option. It took a few hours so I didn't sit through the entire installation but when I returned the 11.2 login screen was displayed. Having logged in, however, I found that I couldn't access the network.The boot log showed that network had failed to start. "ifconfig" lists only the "lo" interface. "ifstatus eth0" returns "Interface eth0 is not available"
Network Settings in YaST lists 2 entries in the Overview tab. The first entry has Name:"NetXtreme BCM5755 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express" and IP Address: "Not configured".The detail pane for this entry shows "NetXtreme BCM5755 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (Not connected) BusID:0000:3f00.0 Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details". The Edit and Delete buttons are both disabled for this entry.
The second entry has exactly the same name as the first with the IP Address listed as "DHCP4". I assume this was the entry that was carried over from the 11.1 system. The detail pane for this entry shows "NetXtreme BCM5755 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (No hwinfo) Device Name: eth0. Started automatically at boot. IP address assigned using DHCP4". The Edit and Delete buttons are both enabled for this entry.lspci reports "3f:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5755 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 02)"
lsmod lists only "edd", "loop", "sr_mod", "sg", "cdrom" and "dm_mod". The files in /etc/sysconfig/network/ are "if-down.d/", "if-up.d/", "providers/", "scripts/", "config", "dhcp", "ifcfg-eth0", "ifcfg-lo", "ifcfg.template", "ifroute-lo",
Last weekend I upgraded my Opensuse 11.1 machine (pretty clean) to 11.3. After the upgrade, the NVidia graphics no longer worked, but more importantly, eth0 was not bound to my Intel 82566DC gigabit ethernet controller. I fooled around in yast network devices long enough to know that everything there is configured correctly. The Yast message at the bottom of the Network Settings screen says:
"Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details."dmesg output shows nothing related to networking. The boot screen shows:
Setting up (localfs) network interfaces: lo ... Waiting for mandatory devices: eth0 __NCS__ 29 28 27 ... 1 0 ... failed eth0 no interface found ... failed
Any ideas here? I've googled till my fingers were tired and all I've found are references from folks with real hardware issues. This machine worked fine for me under 11.1. Now I can't get 11.3 to bind the nic.
I want to set my desktop IP address to always be 192.168.1.2. The NetworkManager connects to the network automatically and the IP address is assigned randomly. I can set up another connection in NetworkManager and always change over. But is there any way to make the default eth0 interface to be permanently set to a certain address (using NetworkManager, not ifup)?
I'm using 11.3 gnome and cannot fix the eth0 connection. Tried to make it work with connection manager, ifup but both of them did'n make eth0 work. Here are some logs that you might wanna see:

I have TP-LINK router that sends wireless signal through the house which I'm using on my laptop's Ubuntu to connect on the internet, also I can connect with Ubuntu from laptop via the same cable that I'm trying to use on my desktop, so the router and cable are working. Also on my dekstop I've installed Windows 7 and can't connect from there either. The computer is new so i doubt that there is something wrong with its hardware. It all started when my connection disappeared. My ISP advised me to reset my router by plugging out the power cable and plugging it back in after 5min, and so I did. After that I could connect only from laptop. Tried to reinstall suse, to install ubuntu, but nothing worked. When I installed suse on my friend's computer, the only thing that I had to do is to open YaST and change the Network setup method from ifup to the NetworkManager, and also insert the MAC adress in the connection's properties. Tried that on my computer, but also didn't work.
I have been noticing a trend on boxes running 11.4 getting RX dropped packets where prior to 11.4 they did not get them. Basically every box running 11.4 now logs dropped RX packets. Have tried changing cables, and in one case replaced the NIC with a different brand (and driver) nic. Also played with receive buffers and yet the counters still increment. In addition to OpenSUSE, I run several operating systems to include Centos, Scientific Linux, Debian, OpenIndiana, HP-UX, VMS and so forth. So far this anomaly has only shown up on machines running OpenSUSE 11.4. Any one else noticing this on your OS 11.4 machines? If so, were you able to resolve?
currently on an acer aspire 5532, and using mozilla and google chrome. webpages take about 10-12 seconds to load using the ethernet, wifi its about 2-3 seconds. using eth0 loading videos - broadcast yourself. in chrome, will sit at "resolving host" for about 10 seconds before bringing up the page. you would think eth0 is faster than wlan0, but for browsing the web its slower. i tested the speeds at speedtest.net - the global broadband speed test and both wlan0 and eth0 get the max speed my internet provides.i never downloaded drivers for the ethernet card or wifi, they worked so i didn't try to mess with them. but perhaps that is my problem?
I get connected to the internet via a router. The router dials to my provider and is connected to my computers via LAN and WLAN (mostly WLAN, see below). A few days ago I installed Suse11.2 to an old laptop (connected both ways: ethernet with wire and wireless ethernet).
The access to the online repositories worked only after I added the LAN-Adapter (Eth0) to the Demilitarised Zone of the firewall (I did also with the WLAN Adapter).
1. Is this normal?
2. Should I add the network devices now to an other zone?
I want to update my main laptop now from openSuse11.1 to 11.2 via new installation (from DVD) and make this installation right.
Or should I install only the data on the DVD and update after the installation via Yast? (My main laptop has also an loose contact at the ethernet adapter.)
Now I am using (on my main laptop = Samsung X20) openSuse 11.1 and Gnome 2.24.1 (mostly, 1 account is using KDE) and Kernel Linux 184.108.40.206-01.1-pae. "/home" is on an separated partition (as part of an extended partition). I have also 2 NTFS partitions for Windows XP (System and Data), and a FAT, a root (/) and a swarp partition. My router is a AVM fritzbox 7270 (firewall should be included).
i'm using opensuse 11.3 and can't connect to the internet, my eth0 interface (which would be my modem i suppose) is found and when i "activate" it with ifup eth0, it gets stuck waiting for data (says so in ifstatus). If i try with knetworkmanager it is also stuck and doesn't connect to eth0. If i try to make it connect at boot, it doesn't work either.
I think the problem might be that in windows xp my modem has a "limited connection" but i can connect with my pppoe password anyway, but opensuse won't let me connect until it finds eth0 is working correctly which it never will because of how the internet company configures the modems i think. I don't know with which command i could "force" the pppoe connection even without a good connection to the modem, maybe that would work. But on the other hand, with other distros i can connect just fine so i don't know really.
I have installed Open SUSE in my DELL server which has 2 broadcom NIC cards, it showing both the NIC cards in Network configuration in YAST ,but it showing as not configured and not connected . Kernel device eth0,wlan0 are not present. In device manager also 2 Broadcom nic cards are detected.
The computer and system in question is the laptop from my description and openSUSE 11.3 with a different kernel from this repository :[URL]..free to move this thread if it should reside in the beta/prerelease forums section. The IMHO relevant information about my hardware and system is shown below.
The kernel I'm using :
Code: grzes@opensuse:~> Linux opensuse.local 220.127.116.11-1-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-02-25 19:59:41 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux The hardware and drivers I'm using : Code: 02:00.0 Network controller : Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) [168c:002b] (rev 01)
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?
I recently setup a new SUSE box for the purposes of acting as an ftp/sftp server. It's currently setup to run ProFTPD 1.3.3.rc3 and mod_sftp/0.9.7. The server has two internal network interfaces eth0 and eth1. eth0 is purely for internal use to accept ftp and ssh. eth1 is outward facing and receives connections from the WAN via SFTP over port 22. The problem I am facing is that after half hour to an hour eth1 stops accepting connections whenever there is no SSH connection present on eth0. I can't figure out why this is happening.
ProFTPD is setup as follows: SocketBindTight directive is on, default server and port are commented out.
When the external interface is unreachable the proftpd and proftpd-sftp logs show no record of any connection attempt. I have noticed however if I leave eth0 down eth1 stays contactable without problem. Can anyone give me some pointers on what I can check to find out why this may be happening.
I've had 11.4/KDE working pretty well on dual boot Asus G73SW for a few weeks now. Only issues were the FN-* functions that control keyboard lights and whatnot but no biggie since the essential worked.The last couple of days the update notification was indicating 1,201 updates to be made. Yeah it seemed extreme but I googled around and checked the forums and there was nothing related. I figured I might be missing some packages since I installed from the live KDE CD (still 1202 updates!!!???). So I updated. Big mistake!!!!! Ever since NetworkManager cannot connect to the internet, be it wired or wireless.
Initially it could not even see my home network but it picked it up after I removed the plasmoid from the panel and reinstalled it. However it doesn't respond when I click the network icon and still no connection.I managed to get eth0 working with ifup but not wifi. The last part of network manager log file is quoted below. I can send the whole thing to whoever is interested. I can't make sense of it but maybe someone on the forums can.
I am using an Acer Aspire 5536 AMD dual core laptop with a 64bit installation of Susie 11.4. Using 11.2 I had no problems connecting to the wireless router. As soon as 11.4 was installed, clean install, and the laptop rebooted, network manager failed to start, until manually invoked and then enabling networking through the system tray. Even after this it will not connect to a wired or wireless network sometimes for more than 30 minutes.
I have just installed opensuse 11.3. I am absolutely new for Linux and for this forum. I have tried to open Network manager to configure my wlan. But its not starting. How to start network manager and configuring my wlan.
Installed a TP-Link TG-3269 Gigabit card in a machine running OS 11.3 32 bit, when I go into Yast, Network Devices, Network to try configuring the card I get this errormsg: Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details. Couldn't find any mention of the card in dmesg's output, (though the 8139 onboard card is in there) there is some stuff about pci host bridge but I don't know whether they would be relevant or not
The chip on the card says it's rtl8169sc but lspci lists it as being 00:07.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 8369 (rev 10) Done some googling and there don't seem be any drivers for a Realtek 8639 and it returns no matches from a search on realtek's site, but there is a driver there for rtl8169sc chips, which I downloaded and installed, no errors when installing it Even after a reboot I still get the same error in Yast's Network Settings screen, lspci still lists it as 8369 and the device isn't listed at all if I run ifconfig
I tried connect to internet through iPhone (bluetooth tether), so I followed one tutorial... It said I have to change "networkmanager" to "ifup" in yast>network settings, and make some other changes... I did it, but I couldn't connect via iphone... OK... I put back all changes, also changed ifpu to networkmanager.
After reboot, Knetowrkmanager gives me "network management disabled" on startup, instead of list of my networks.
Of course, I google for solution, but without any luck. And then, I don't know why, I killed Knetworkmanager, start it again, and.. it worked!
But now, I have to kill it, and start again always, when I reboot my laptop...(HP Compaq 6720s, BCM4312, KDE 4.3.4)
A network client computer gets ip address from dhcp server, loads initrd and failed on Loading Istallation System stage 4 or 5. If I try to continue installation in manual mode I get an error net_activate: ifconfig eth0 up failed I tryed network cards from different vendors it did not help. Ubuntu linux installs successfully in current environment.
I'm a newbie on Linux and trying to find my feet so please be kind.I have installed vmware on my XP laptop and have installed fedora core 9. Network setting on the VMware is set to bridged. My interface eth0 which is using the wireless does not start on boot. I have to run ifup ifcfg-eth0.The file ifcfg-eth0 had onboot=yes and NM=no, so i changed it so that the NM=yes.However this does not resolve the problem at all. I have put the file back to its original configuration and I have disabled network manager and have had no luck
