if you need help 1) promise to use a better title next time and 2) actually tell us the slightest thing about your connection, what form does it even take?? ADSL? Dialup? pixies?

My Intenet uses pixies. They're great.



helgard, it sounds as though you have just installed SuSE 10.1. If that is the case then you would definitely benefit by obtaining SuSE 10.2 and installing that. A lot of things that were broken in SuSE 10.0 and 10.1 are fixed in 10.2.

As acid_kewpie said, if not completely clearly, please provide as much information about your problem when you write. Acid_kewpie mentioned the method that you use to connect to the Internet, whether you use a telephone dial up, ADSL, cable modem, or something else. I recommend pixies or fairies if they are available. If you don't have those then please let us know what hardware is used.

And, please don't be offended at the attempts of acid_kewpie and myself to add a bit of humor to our responses. We are both eager to help you.
