On loading KDE Live Linux from DVD, first screen loads, network manager pop up
is visible in lower right hand screen, seems sensible to use to get to
No Joy, Wired connection has add greyed out, wireless had add greyed out (both
Eth) wired connected and wireless active on computer. Tick to use network
manager no action.

This immediately stops any internet use by a newbie, as most Live Linux distos
show existing wireless connections to enable select and connect or ethernet to
select and connect. (E.g. Knoppix, Puppy)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load DVD
2. Start screen has no way to connect to internet. Except network manager in
lower right hand box
3. Always reproducable
Actual Results:
1. Load YAST
2 Select DNS set up and know DNS ,settings! (newbie would not know!)
3 Select by adding an ISP, DNS auto and log on password etc

Expected Results:
To get to ISP and internet. it was successful

The LIVE LINUX disto should automatically scan for available wireless
connections and connected ethernet wired connections and show a dialog on FIRST
landing page to connect.

the OpenSUSE 12.3 live Linux distros do not give any introduction to a newbie
and much distress to an experienced 'user' as they do not perform as others
to connect to internet on first start up.
