No networks at all (eth0, wlan0)


Hello again,

I just switched from Fedora 13 to openSUSE 11.3 on my laptop and so far love it...well...not quite. I'm having some major network issues. As in...no networks.

I installed everything and booted up for the first time. Everything worked great, I had wireless through wlan0 and could connect directly to my home router via eth0 with no problems. Installed a few applications and ran into some problems with hibernating/suspend modes. I rebooted and like magic, NetworkManager said networking was diabled. My WiFi light was off. Network switch on the computer didn't do anything.

I thought alright, I'll connect my ethernet cord and can go from there....problem is that won't work either. I tried searching for drivers online on my desktop, found some and transferred them via USB with no luck. They won't install. I have no idea why, or whats going on but I really need my laptop for school on Monday so it would be AWESOME to have it working by then.

Here is what I have:

Intel 5150 WiFi card
Dell Studio XPS M1640 laptop
OpenSUSE 11.3

If you need more info, just let know.

Thanks!

Well, I removed knetworkmanager (I think?) and installed wicd and I have internet working through wicd. but on startup i get some error about not being able to connect to dbus or something. I don't remember what it is. Ill write it down and post it up next time i see it. Ethernet works as well.n.
