eth1 interface does not start up automatically

When booting the computer the system is not able to set up service network. the only way to connect to the net is to delete the network card and to re-install it with YAST. This behaviour is since yesterday and I did not change any configuration settings.
I have a broadband router and this computer (desktop) is connected to it as well as a laptop. The laptop works fine. Anybody has any idea?

Why is it eth1? It should be eth0. If its not, and you have a seperate interface called eth0, eth1 won't boot as eth0 has priority. Change yast so that its eth0 if you can.
