No network access after installing Suse 11.2
I'm new to SUSE. I had some virus issues with Windows Vista and decided to change my OS.
I have the modem set up and still can't get the internet to come up. I get the mozilla blank webpage, but I am connected to the internet server.
What can I do to get full internet access if everything seems to be working they way it should except for the blank webpage? I know I must be missing something but what?
Also, how do I open Yast to use it? I think I opened it by accident and got some things done, but now I can't figure out how I did it.
I tried to do a configure of the network and got KTTSD failed. Not sure what this means. What is KTTSD and how do I fix this problem?
Let's try something using the terminal.
Connect normally and do the following.
ping any server. If it works, the problem may be your browser
execute: cat /etc/resolv.conf
The command above should contain an entry like: namesever xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. If it does not contain anything like it, you must set up that manually.
If you don't see a ppp0 entry in the middle of the information that comes up and if it contains a ppp0 entry but not an ip address than this could a misconfiguration problem on your modem setup.
If you need more help on that. you may paste those commands in your next message.
that is a bit odd suse is very good at auto setting up most network settings
some hardware info would help
forget about yast for now -- if you can not connect to the net yast is unusable
-- the 20 questions part --
is this a desktop or laptop?
hardware specs ?
how did vista connect to the net ( as in how are you NOW tiring to )
dial up -56k ?
the brand and make/model of the network hardware
if wireless then what is the hardware ?
if cable -- i do not think so - that every linux will 100% auto setup just fine)
are you using a proxy ?
are you behind a network router ( as in a office) ?
and so on ...
you also might want to READ some -- if not all -- of the OpenSUSE documentation
-- i would register at the forum --
and READ the ** Information for New Users **
But if you're unable to open any website, that maybe a DNS configuration problem.
Sometimes, it may happen that even after you're connected, your DNS configuration was not updated on resolv.conf
and that works, you have the basics of networking set up, but if
then fails, name resolution (DNS - converting the 'human readable' site names into the numeric value) is not working, so you would need to concentrate your effort there. You could also use, eg, dig to check out name resolution.
There is still no output from "cat /etc/resolv.conf" so we cannot comment on how you have that set up. You can probably either set that up to a publicly accessible DNS server (eg, Google's at 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52, described here or OpenDNS at 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11).
Or, if your modem/router is set up to use either one of the above, or your ISP's DNS servers, you could just use your router as your upstream source.
One puzzle about all of this is that normally your m/r would be using DHCP to hand out IPs and mDNS to set up the rest, so this would normally all happen 'automagically'. Have you done anything that stops mDNS or DHCP from doing the auto configuration thing?
If this does not help, you will need to say whether you are using Networkmanager, Wicd, or idup/ifdown type networking configuration. Maybe that will show up when you post the resolv.conf contents.
