internet problem with Compaq Presario 2100


Hi, I installed SuseLinux 10.1 on my Compaq Presario 2100, everything works fine, except for the connection with internet (wired nor wireless) thru a router.
For wired I've got a built-in lan in my laptop:
Client MAC Address 00 0F 20 21 A7 2D
GUID: 8083383D-02AA-D811-9098-000F2021A72D
No DHCP or PROXY DHCP received

I've got a Linksys Router WAG354G and for my laptop a Sitecom Wireless Network PC Card 54g model WL-112 V2 MAC: 000CF61B318B, no wireless internet either.

I installed ndiswrapper, it recognizes the driver rt2500.inf, but nothing happens or I only errors after.

When I try to configure something in Network nothing happens.

Now someone told me Suse doesn't serve two LANs, so I should uninstall one in the BIOS, probably the wired one.
I did so, but my Sitecom didn't pick up my router at all.
So I took out my Sitecom, reinstalled the built-in-lan, everything was recognized, but still no wired internet.

What could be wrong?

This post is a little confusing. Are you trying to get the wired connection working or the wireless connection? Or both?
I would suggest you pick one ( the wired connection ) and start there.

From what I can see, eth0 has an IP address assigned of 169.254.215.110. That is a class B address. Is that assigned statically? or by DHCP? Is this consistant with the lan side of your router? Does it have an address in the range of 169.254.xxx.yyy? Have you tried to ping the router?


Can you connect to the routers configuration page?

For the wireless, if you are using Ndiswrapper, you need all the files in the same directory as the .inf file. Most windoze drivers I've see have several files.

Hi Cliff, no, I'm trying to get a wired connection constantly as the wireless connection refuses constantly, nevertheless it's important to have a wireless connection anyway when taking my laptop with me.
But for now I'm trying to connect this wired connection, without result anyway.
Yes, ping 169.254.xxx.yyy works fine.
This is assigned statically, not by DHCP, DHCP does not connect.
When I try to ping the router 192.168.1.1 I get "network is unreachable" whereas when I ping same with my desktop there is no problem.

I installed the entire rt2500 drivers file thru root into the ndiswrapper directory.

Someone said Suse 10.2 would have solved the problem, I know someone with the same laptop, with Suse 10.2 and this problem has not been solved after all.

But when I have the solution for me, I hope, I can also inform him.

Why I informed about my lspci -v is to show that everything has been "configure". ifconfig is clear why just like iwconfig.

Thanks, Peter

You have IP addresses that will not work together, without a router in between them.

If 192.168.1.1 is the IP address on your router, you will always get a network unreachable from 169.154.xxx.yyy. You need to change your system to a 192.168.1.x address. Do that statically, and try to ping your router. At that point I believe it will work that far.

Is the 169.154.xxx.yyy address assigned by your ISP? If yes, that is the address on the ISP side of your router, not any of the hosts on your lan side.

Give this a try and post back...

ping ok, still no internet

Hi Cliff,

I changed the system statically on 192.168.1.102 and pinging is ok, but there is still no internet.
No, 169.xxx.xxx.xxx is definitely not my ISP. My ISP: 83.87.23.252

So, what can we do now?

Thanks.

Once you can ping your router, you should need to other things set for a working internet connection. They are a default route from your system to your router, and possibly you need to set DNS IP addresses.

To see if you have a default route set, at a command prompt ( as SU ) type 'route' ( without the quotes ) to dump the kernel routing table. Look for a default to your routers IP address. Here is what it looks like on my system.

Code:
$ /sbin/route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
192.168.1.0     *               255.255.255.0   U     1      0        0 eth0
169.254.0.0     *               255.255.0.0     U     1      0        0 eth0
127.0.0.0       *               255.0.0.0       U     0      0        0 lo
default         192.168.1.1     0.0.0.0         UG    1      0        0 eth0
To add a route, here is a sample, I copied it from the man page. It adds a default gateway address, and sets the mask correctly. See the man page for details and more examples.

Code:
$ route add gw 192.56.76.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 dev eth0
Now for DNS, most routers will pass the correct DNS addresses back to using systems. To look at what is there, after you set the default route, look at the file /etc/resolv.conf file. It should have correct DNS addresses. If your router does not pass them, you can edit the file as root and store correct DNS addresses. Your ISP should be able to tell you those addresses that work for your network connection.

Post back the results.
