Problem connecting to LAN in order to get internet


I have installed SuSE 9.0 in my PC. Everything is okay but internet connection. My PC (personal use) is connected to a LAN in order to get internet but my computer is not a part of the Local Network. It is just connected to the router. My Windows XP detects the connection but SuSE does not.

Please help. :-)

Need more info S.A. the LAN configuration netbeef TCP/IP novel etc

But if I guess correctly --- and

If connected do you have the /etc/resolv.conf properly set up properlty

also
[root@localhost /]# route -n #should give something like among other lines

Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
0.0.0.0 X.X.X.X 255.255.255.255 UGH 0 0 eth0

the /etc/resolv.conf needs to have entries for your primary and secondary and possibly your tertiary name server lookups provided by your ISP for example

nameserver 206.141.196.13
nameserver 206.141.192.60
nameserver 65.43.19.2

replace the example IP addresses with the ones provided by your ISP

Fist of all, let's try to configure it using the GUIs.
Click on the Menu, go to System and select YaST.

In YaST, click on Network Devices and then on Network card.
In this section we have "Already configured devices" and "Network cards to configure".

If your network card was not configured automatically, select the card and click "configure".
If your network is amount the "Already configured devices", you may need to make some modifications.
If your Network card is not listed, then it is not supported.

YaST has very good explanations on the left-hand side.

Does your router give out IP addresses (DHCP) ?
Knowing this will determine weither you need to set up your network card with DHCP or with a static IP addresses (including DNS IPs and a default gateway).

If you want to see a list of detected hardware, in YaST, go to "Hardware" and click on "Hardware information".

Sorry misread your first post
So you are getting out but can`t see your file server?

First check out the networking how-to

Do a web search on --> Linux networking howto
Should give about a billion sites with it

Then check out the Samba how-to

Do a web search on --> Linux samba howto
Should also give about a billion sites with it.

The issue here is that TCP/IP is not the same protocol (language spoken) on ethernet wires.
First you need to find out what proto is being used to the server.

The process is actually simple like math but you need to learn the rules and processes
Howtos and online tutorials will allow you to learn. But be patient. Ive been using linux since the 2.0 kernel was new.

You need help the people will help.----- But you're the one with the fingers on the keyboard

thanks

Mathieu, I have done what you told me.

Yes, my network card was configured yet. I have clicked to modify it and I have entered the IP address, the "máscara de subred" (¿subnetwork mask in English?) and the "Puerta de enlace predeterminada" (¿Default link gate in English?) as I have seen them in Windows configuration.

Now I can see the LAN, its server and the rest of computers but internet does not still work.

What do I have to do now?

At last

I have solved the problem. I have internet connection!!!

By mixing all your advices I have well configured SuSE and I have no problems at all now.

I installed SuSE 3 days ago and I really like it. It's smooth, fast, interesting, makes you understand better how a computer works. I can do all the things without depending on windows (maybe games...)

Thanks all.
