Report Cannot Get Ip Address (anymore) In Opensuse 10.3 in Other Linux and Unix Distributions Posted October 23, 2007 I have 2 computers, both running WindowsXP and OpenSUSE 10.3 with dual-boot. The 'old' system has an Intel (e1000 driver) network card, the new one has a Realtek (Realtek 8111B) card. I used to be able to connect to both systems (almost) effortlessly under OpenSUSE in both systems. However, when I boot the new system in OpenSUSE 10.3, I cannot get an IP address. At least this is what I think that happens; I use a D-Link wireless ethernet 'bridge' thing, meaning -I think- that thing gets an IP address from my access point and gives it to my Linux system. There are 4 leds on that box: power, diag, lan, wlan. On the 'old' system, all four leds start to burn (green) once the computer boots. I can connect to the network fine with the old system in both WinXP and OpenSUSE 10.3 Now the weird thing: when I boot the new machine, the 'lan' led does not burn at all. However, when I boot into WindowsXP, when it starts up, the lan led blinks and turns green. Once I log out of Windows, the led turns off again. And when I boot into OpenSUSE 10.3 on the new system, the led stays off no matter what I tried. It worked fine a couple of days ago. Okay, I messed around with the system settings a bit, but not too much so I do not suspect any settings are wrong. Why could this be?
