Re: [SLE] Lost DSL Connection <SOLVED>

Your thoughts got me thinking and I found the answer in YaST by unclicking the update name servers and search list via DHCP. I entered in the correct ones and it works great now. Funny that my new modem puts in bogus info when that is clicked. Luckily I was able to access the modems setup features and find the true name server addresses. Maybe it's a 64-bit issue?

Thanks for the help.

Standard network stuff:
First, make sure you can ping the gateway using ip address. This
ascertains that you can get out of the box.
Next, ping a local address within your ISP if your know them, such as
DNS servers.
If you can't, then your routing table:
netstat -nr.

Then make sure you have the correct DNS servers set up. You can do this
via YaST or just edit /etc/resolv.conf
Many times, the problem is simply that you don't have any DNS servers
