Suse can't connect to net on a notebook


Hi All,

I ran Suse 9.3 on a Toshiba notebook for a little while, and it worked flawlessly

I have now installed Suse 10.0 on a NEC Versa E6000 notebook

I can't connect to the internet

I'm using a program called bpalogin
(bpalogin.sourceforge.net) with a cable modem - this worked on the toshiba in 9.3 straight away

I've installed it as I did in 9.3 on the toshiba.

But - I get no connection in 10.0 on this NEC notebook

Windows calls my network card -
Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC

Any advice on where to go from here?

thank u

of
lspci | grep -i ether

Cheers,
Tink

Have you tried to configure the card in Yast? And make sure the firewall is setup to adapt.
What is the output of `ifconfig` or `ifup eth0`?

Cool now your getting somewhere' I see you have a valid IP that reverses.
Are you still having troubles geting online?

If not:
-Can you ping outside IP's?
-Have you checked /etc/resolv.conf for the correct nameservers.

micxz@mars:~> host 155.143.4.9
9.4.143.155.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer CPE-155-143-4-9.vic.bigpond.net.au.

when trying to ping i get
connect: Network is unreachable

or, it hangs, with no response

........
I saw this when I was restarting the machine - wondered if it was relevant?

failed services in runlevel 5: network

I would add this to your resolv.conf

Code:
nameserver 61.9.240.14
nameserver 61.9.224.14
I got these numbers off the "http://bigpond.custhelp.com/" site.

[HTML]<pre>DNS settings for accessing BigPond State Primary DNS Server IP Address Secondary DNS Server IP Address
NSW, Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania, ACT 144.140.70.30 144.140.71.16
South Australia , Northern Territory 61.9.224.14 61.9.240.14
Western Australia 61.9.240.14

61.9.224.14</pre>[/HTML]
