Question Internet on Suse 10.1

I loaded my 10.1 on a new HP 530 Laptop. The computer came only with Free-DOS installed.

There was no problem installing the Suse from my 5 CDs.
The only thing that does not work now, is the dsl connection.
When I installed the same Suse 10.1 on my desktop, internet worked perfectly right away.
I simple plugged in the dsl cable and it worked.
The HP 350 even says network mangaer connected, and when I unplug this cabe,it says connection terminated......

I went to yast and the dsl page
at device it says: dsl0
at TypeSL
at provider: arcor, which is correct

But: no connection!!!!!

When I go to yast as told to modem configuration, I get the following notice:
"Net work manager is enabled, some features may not wotk.
You may want to use kinternet"

Where do I go from here?

Thanks, upageya

Try using kinternet see if it makes any difference. If you don't have it, go to yast2 - software, and search for kinternet, and install it, then select run, and type kinternet which will start it. then see what happens, still the same error? or a different error? either way let us know.

best of luck

I use suse 9.3 and suse 10.3 with dsl If suse do not see the dsl connection directly it is mostly because she do not find out that the dsl device is connected with a ethernet card So try to configure the ethernet card if you use one Mostly it is enough to configure the ethernet with IP address is dynamic and ppp over ethernet if of course the ethernet card driver is loaded

all the best

Internet with Suse 10.1 on an HP 530 notebook

Every indicator tells me that the notebook is connected, as soon as I plug in the dsl cable. When I unplug it, it tells me immediately that networkmanager is now again disconnected... The only thing that does not work is that firefox is not accessing the internet... Maybe there is a firewall problem? But I did install Suse from the CDs the same way as I did on other computers, wher there was no problem....

Hello Mattyoly], I followed your directions, and when I went into Yast and software and search, I was told that it could not find Kinternet....

Thanks again to everyone, Upageya


internet, suse
