Hi, first time posting here. I've got suse 8.2 and initially installed it on a 900 MHz athlon system using an asus A7A266 motherboard (usb 1.0) with a dlink ethernet card. Everything worked perfectly.
I have now upgraded to a athlon 2500 barton> processor with an asus A7N8X-Delux motherboard (usb 2.0) which has two
lan ports built in (3com and nvidia). The cards are properly identified in the install but cannot be used. I tried inserting the dlink but it also does not work though it is identified. I'm using a router (DNS, DHCP) to connect to the internet.
ifconfig will show the cards present but they can't seem to establish a connection.
I tried removing some of the inbuilt features to remove possible irq conflicts and tried installing FreeBSD. Under FreeBSD, the network cards were detected, I could easily connect to the Internet (necessary to cvsup). I liked the linux, but if I cannot not get it to work I'll probably migrate to BSD, which is a little daunting considering all the configuration files one has to look at.
SO WHAT'S THE PROBLEM? SuSE worked before but will not anymore. What happened? Is it the motherboard, something I didn't configure properly, WHAT?
ANY HELP is appreciated.
NOTE: dmesg will state 'There are no IPv6 routers present.'
NOTE: I'm not a newbie but probably do not know all of the commands to use or the options to use. I also used yast and ifconfig but most likely not in the correct fashion.
Without a few more specifics its kinda hard to tell, most likely the cards are fine, IRQ issues are part of mobo history now, PCI buses can stack and share, have been since the P2 era. SuSe's GUI Yasty stuff is great up until it breaks and then its just an unholy nightmare. What were the commands you were using to try and grab and IP address?
