Suse 9.2 Networking problem


Hi,

I'm having an irritating problem getting Suse 9.2 to work with my network card. This card worked fine with Suse 9.1 (no patches). Ifirst notcied the problem when I installed the online updates with Suse 9.1, so something has changed and carried through to Suse 9.2. Suse recognizes my card, but refuses to get an IP address for me via DHCP. If I try static, I get 'network is unreachable' messages.

Hardware: Sager NP 4750 laptop AMD 64 3400, network card is a Realtek 8169/8110 (Realtek RTL8110S-32 ). I am running 64 bit Suse.

The driver loaded is the r8169.

Output from ifconfig for eth0:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:90:F5:32:18:4E
inet6 addr: fe80::290:f5ff:fe32:184e/64 Scope:Link

collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt:161 Base address:0x4800

At boot time everything seems OK:

Nov 6 21:58:59 linux kernel: r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 1.2 loaded
Nov 6 21:58:59 linux kernel: eth0: Identified chip type is 'RTL8169s/8110s'.
Nov 6 21:58:59 linux kernel: eth0: RTL8169 at 0xffffff0000144800, 00:90:f5:32:18:4e, IRQ 161

However, at boot time:

Setting up network interfaces:
lo
lo IP address: 127.0.0.1/8
done eth0 device: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8169 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)

wlan-bus-pci-0000:00:05.0 No interface found

The only other entries I've found are in hte warning log:

Nov 1 17:48:28 linux kernel: Your time source seems to be instable or some driver is hogging interupts
Nov 1 17:48:28 linux kernel: rip rtl8169_phy_timer+0x9d/0xc0 [r8169]
Nov 1 17:48:38 linux kernel: r8169: eth0: PHY reset until link up

Not sure if htese are significant.

I dual boot on this machine, and the hardware works fine with Windows XP, so I know at least at that level everything is OK.

Any insight would be most appreciated here, as I'm not sure where to go next investigating this.

Thanks

I had the same problem on my Compaq nc6000 -- I have 2 network adapters, ath0 which is the Atheros wireless lan and eth0 which is a Broadcom Gigabit ethernet adapter. I think because suse recognizes my ath0 before my eth0 adapter it tries to use the ath0 to route all IP requests, since I didn't have any default routing set up at the time. I could be wrong about that.

When I plug into the office after being at home I had to do the following,

1. Open a command shell and login as root
2. /etc/init.d/network stop ath0
3. ifconfig
4. /etc/init.d/network restart eth0
5. ifconfig

And viola, it works fine. I set up a "work" and a "home" profile with the networking information and it switches fine now. Somewhere in the documentation it suggests using Kinternet to manage your connections, so you might want to try that as well.

Also, because you are getting the error " eth0 No configuration found for eth0" you might try to reset your network settings using Yast. I found I had to reboot for my changes to take full effect.

Hi,

I'm not sure we have the same problem; Yast hasn't configured my wireless card and it doesn't show up in ifconfig. I do see the ath driver loading though; I'll try getting rid of it as a start and see.

Thanks for the info

Can you send a complete dmesg of the system after boot and post an URL pointing
to the sources of the kernel you are using ?

Suse 9.2 Networking problem

In case you haven't found the sollutions yet, this is what work just fine for me after having the same problems:

Edit the /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan (or other device)

insert these 2 lines below the first line in the file:

DHCLIENT_MODIFY_RESOLV_CONF='yes'
DHCLIENT_SET_DEFAULT_ROUTE='yes'

Save the file and restart your network interfaces:

cd /etc/init.d
./network restart

After this I actually got an ip address :-)

Hope it works for you as well!

Cheers,
Nick

Hi,

Thank you both for your replies. I had dropped back to Suse 9.1 to do some work but I'm about ready to try again. I'll give yours a shot nick.speedxs.nl and if it fails post the dmesg output ueimor

I noted the ipv6 router not found so I tried disabling ipv6, and the driver promptly reported that eth0 link up as above, but still no IP address.

Thanks

The same troubles with the same card

Hi..!!

Ive read all posts about the same trouble, and I decided to post a new one with a different case..
Im using Debian 3.0 on an PIV 3.0Ghz , ABIT AA8 DuraMAX with a Realtek 8169 integrated..

Everything goes ok while booting, once booted the realtek only is up during about 60 seconds.. After this, all looks right, ifconfig looks right, but theres no response to pings, etc.

Tried several times to shutdown and restart the interface, but I only get another 60 seconds every time.
Im using kernel 2.6.8 with the driver built-in, I tried to use it as a module and there was no difference.

What the hell is going on??
Does anybody have found a solution ??

Thank you all..
Eduardo

Can you send the complete dmesg + ifconfig output once the network traffic stopped ?

You are not using a 2.95.x compiler, right ?

FIXED

I have an IP finally for my machine. The solution was to set noapic at boot time. This is something I *thought* I had tried, but apparently not... Thanks to everyone who had a look.
