Hi All,
I am a novice and just shifted from Windows XP to SuSE 9.1 personal edition. I loaded SuSE on dell PC but could not browse internet. The network card (built-in intel Pro/100 VE) is fine as it used to work with windows.

From intel site, I found out that the latest driver e100-3.2.3.tar.gz is already installed on my system. I can only ping gateway but nothing beyond it. Also can not browse internet.

Any help is welcome. Onething I found using SuSE hardware tool is that it says network controller is available but configured:no. But if I click configure, it already shows the card configured.

Thanks for help!

Hi,

press CTRL-ALT-F1

type root

type your root password

then type
ifconfig
(tell us what it shows)
route
(tell us what it shows)
cat /etc/resolv.conf
(tell us what it shows)

by any chance are you behind a proxy server ?

Sincerely

Thanks Robert,

Here is what I see:

ifconfig:

No, I am not behind a proxy server. In windows, I used to use connect directly to internet.

Thanks for help!

Hi Robert,
No, it does not ping other computer. But the funny thing is other computer can ping my Linux computer.
Thanks,

The Linux system does ping the gateway though (in this case 10.0.0.1)

Hi,

open up the console

and type (as root) /etc/init.d/iptables stop

try browsing again, try pinging the computers

Hi Robert,
I was able to resolve the problem. The problem is, we had two routers in office. one is Cisco and another Dlink. Only Cisco was connected. Dlink was just additionally on the network, being used as hub. I just removed the Dlink and then everything works fine now! I am sure you will understand better what would have gone wrong than me.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Cheers.
