I just installed opensuse 10.0. I seem not to be able to connect to the internet at all. I have a sbc yahoo local network (wife's pc, my laptop, now my desktop with SUSE). How do I go about configuring my desktop to allow me to connect to the net with my browser/email, etc?
Well more info is needed, how are the machines connected to the net? which device do you use? router, modem etc.
You may have to set DHCP (should be in Yast somewhere), or if the device doesn't support it you could assign a manual ip address use the router ip as the gateway and DNS if you dont know them for your IP.
I am new to SUSE Linux 10 but while configuring the system I remember it saying there was a wall between networks while a computer was connected to the Internet. I could/very well might be very wrong here but try to set up you desktop to the Internet without the other computers on board.
I'm going to try to install 10.1a3 to see if that can correct the problem. If so, I'll check the network configs to see what the difference is . . . if it helps and I can figure it out, I'll try to reinstall 10.0 and go from there. Thanks for the help so far guys.
Looks like there's no ip/subnet set. Probably because it's set to recieve them via DHCP and if your device doesn't do that you will need to go into the yast networking part and configure a manual IP/subnet mask (ipconfig in windows on another machine to find the info).
My apologies, i have never used Suse, so i am sketchy about what Yast can do for you
Hm, I'm not sure I'm doing this in the right place. In yast, I go to Network devices, Network card, then click on the Accton ethernet adapter . . . change from automatic address setup (via DHCP) to manual static address . . . enter in the IP address/subnet mask . . . then changed the gateway to the default gateway.
Then I saved all configs, opened up firefox . . . and nothing, couldn't connect. Am I missing a step here?
