http://forums.opensuse.org – I installed 11.1 when it first came out. The PC I used gave up the ghost and I bought a refurbie, HP xw4100 and installed the 11.1 drive in it. All works except Internet connection. I am befuddled, bemused, confused and at a complete loss! The router on USB is not detected. Boot Time - Status blinks, LAN is OFF and remains OFF. DSL blinks several times. Booted - Status continues and DSL blinks. YaST (NetworkManager is useless) Network Devices - DSL Config Overview - DSL Devices - Not detected - Add - PPP over Ethernet Mode Dependent Settings - Ethernet Card - DS: Connection - Unknown - No IP address assigned - Configure Network Cards = On Hotplug Network Settings - Enable IPV6 (as oreviously set) - DHCP Client Options - left blank Overview - Unknown Device - IP Address - Not configured - Unknown Network Device (no hwinfo) Edit - Dynamic Address - Zeroconf Next - Loop back to Overview - Unknown Device Any ideas? I naturally (or foolishly?) expected things to carry on as before. :'( (Distributions)
