Activating network services


Hey,
I have SUSE 11.1 on a new dual core build.
The internet will happen when the "activating network services" is done.
It last for varying lengths of time, usually 5 minutes, then disappears.
I've been tweaking many of the network settings and feel, that's right, feel as if there is a looping 'check' to see if all the penguins are lined up properly.
The bridge has a 'No hwinfo' message.
The IPv6 was enabled and disabled.
The eth0, IP & DHCP are recognized.
The 'ifconfig' shows signs of life.

I'm new to Linux and enjoy playing around with it. I'm lost, but making good time.

Going in cicles,
RDH

i don't know SUSE too well, but if you're losing the net your lease might be expiring. Hopefulyl this file is there... can you give me the result of

$cat /etc/dhcp.conf (or something like that)

Thanks chef,
It's not an expiration issue.
I looked in /etc/dhcp.config and nothing.
$cat ?? What is this?

Oh, $ is the representation of the bash shell (so where you input the command cat, it would look something like this: user@mylaptop$ cat blah/blah)

Are you saying that the file doesn't exist? Or that it is empty?

On a side note, are you using ethernet or wireless?
