I don't know if this is the correct place for this question, I got here after reading about DHCP problems in config files in the archives. I've been banging my head against the monitor for a week now trying to get a NIC to work! I've checked, double checked, and had my IT guys check, the configuration and nothing seems to be wrong. I've tried three different cards with the same results; YAST recognizes the cards, and installs the correct module for each card. But, when I ping I get a Destination Host Unreachable error. I've looked for IRQ conflicts, faulty hardware (I took a card out of a Linux box that works and put it in mine - didn't help!), and I've changed a few lines in /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0 , and other config files in there, to values that should of worked. Nothing seems to help. I was wondering if something happened in the installation process that is causing the NIC to not work. If anyone has any suggestions on what to try next I'd REALLY appreciate it.
Thanks, Ken Graham

suse-linux-e is probably better.

Bad cable, switch, or hub? Show us the output of ifconfig and route -n.
