    Can't connect if both wireless & wired interfaces installed


    I'm havening a weird problem. I'm using SuSE 10.0 on a Sager notebook with w built in Realtek NIC and an Intersil/Prism wireless.

    If both the wired and wireless interfaces are enabled and configured I can access local addresses on my LAN, but I cannot connect to the Internet.

    If I go into Yast and delete the wireless (so it is listed as "not configured") I can then connect to both the LAN and the Internet.

    Here is a snip it from the startup log with both interfaces enabled:

    Setting up network interfaces:
    lo
    lo IP address: 127.0.0.1/8

    Here is the log entry with the wireless not configured:

    doneSetting up service network . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .done

    I noticed that either way the wired card is assigned the same IP address by the router, but I can connect only with the wireless card disabled.

    Please help!

    Thanks in advance!

    In yast's network card config page, under hardware details or additional settings, tell it to bring up the wired/wireless card manually rather than "on boot".

    That may be either because the nameservers aren't correctly setup or the system is trying to route the traffic through the wrong card.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
