Question Networking problem after SuSE 8.1 to SuSE 9.3 upgrade

Networking stopped working after my SuSE 8.1 to 9.3 upgrade. The message I got from the networking testing dialog box at the end of the upgrade was:

interface 0 could not be opened.

I tried using YaST2 to re-configure this network device without any success.

Thanks in advance for your help.

ive never had a problem configuring a network device with yast so maybe the network settings arent the problem. have you tried disabling the firewall? try stopping the firewall then test your network connection. if it works, then re-enable your firewall and adjust the settings. If that doesn't work maybe try installing a new network card.

It's quite some step from 8.1 to 9.3. I suppose there are a lot of changes in configurations. You probably have less trouble with a fresh install.
