No internet connection, ethernet card id ok
I've just installed Suse 9.3 without a glitch, until I ran into problems with the network.
The network card is recognized, it gets its ip from my 3com officeconnect ADSL router/modem but I can't get to the internet. Booting with XP will get me to it.
If I run IFCONFIG I get my ip on eth0, RX packets OK, and errors on TX packets.
If I ping my router I get host unreachable.
If I try to open any website by their ip, I get connection refused on Mozilla.
With route -n I get:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 UG 0 0 0 eth0
I've already tried with DHCP, and then I've tried static IP.
I've read quite a few posts, and I've disabled ipv6 and nscd
Firewall on XP, router and Suse are disabled
My private network runs on 192.168.1.xxx
My gateway is the router 192.168.1.1
My DNS are 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 (these are already my NameServers)
Question 1: In Yast -> Network Services -> DNS and Host name ; what do I enter in Domain search? I have the DNS IPs but no name
Question 2: What's this 169.254.0.0 showing up on route -n?
My network set-up clearly shows it's on 192.168.1.251 (out of the router's DHCP range)
Any help, tips, suggestions are most welcome,
