I'm a big newbie in configuring network interfaces. Here is what I did (I am using openSUSE 10.2 and NetworkManager)
-I plugged-in the wireless ethernet adapter
-I tried to access 192.168.2.225 (as written in the manual
) with a browser (It said the connection was refused)
and ifconfig gives me the following output:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:43:68:4F:91
inet addr:169.254.191.15 Bcast:169.254.255.255 Mask:255.255.0.0

Knetworkmanager tells me it is connected to the Wired Interface. I still cannot enter 192
.168.2.225 (I have tried various other ip, but none worked).
-I have tried reseting my device several time: always the same results.
-I have googled the problem and searched the manual: no problem at all, everything seems to work out of the box even for linux users...
-I have even tried to access the web interface in a windows pc (not sure this test is reliable though: the pc is very buggy and uses a very restrictive firewall...), it didn't work. When I use the easy setup cd, it crashes when looking for the device...
I wonder if something could be broken in the device. So my questions are:
-How can I try to configure my eth0 interface so that I can access the device ?
-How to make sure that my ethernet interface is working and that the device has a problem I cannot fix from the PC ?
Thanks for your consideration. (Any kind of help would be very welcome)
