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.
