Suse 9.2 ethernet/internet problems


Currently have suse 9.2 installed on my laptop.

Plugged a ethernet cable which is connected to a router which is connected to a cable modem.

Suse seems to find the network fine and automatically sets up the ip address via DCHP. Problem is that I cant access the internet as it comes up with "Unknnown Host: http://www.google.com" in Konquerer. I can ping the router and other computers on the network okay.

Any ideas?

I got the same problem. And also, the computer cannot get the IP from DHCP server(router).
So I cannot ping the router.
I don't know how to setup.

When you have two ethernet interfaces, DHCP will only set the default router for the first one it finds. I had a similar problem with 9.2 on my laptop because I was using the WiFi (eth1) and not the wired (eth0) connection. DHCP was failing on eth0 and succeeding (at getting an address) on eth1, but since it had already made a request for eth0 it would not set the name server/router information on eth1. When I set it to bring up eth0 manually instead of at boot, it worked fine.

But I have 1 interface only(eth0)
