I have a laptop i am working on and have seen post similiar to my situation. I have wireless connection. But i cannot connect LAN or wireless. When i do an ipconfig it tells me the media is disconnected. When i both in OpenSUSE it connects to the internet with no problem so it is not a hardware issue. I also uncheck IPV6 option in the properties. Can anyone offer some assistance. Thanks

Can you tell us what make and model laptop you have?

Have you tried updating the drivers for your network connections ( wireless and wired )?

Have you tried resetting TCP/IP and Winsock? ( netsh int ip reset reset.log ) and ( netsh winsock reset sock.log )

It is very possible your computer is infected with some sort of malware. Go here and run through the steps. The utilities on the page can be downloaded to a thumb drive or even dropped into your windows partition by your OpenSUSE install. If you do find you are infected, continue on with the instructions and post in the Virus, Spyware and Malware forum.

Hope this helps,

I have already tried different anti-malware software and spyware. Many were that i had used were the same ones recommended on that page. There were no malware or spyware's at all on the laptop. I even checked regedit to consider and virsus or malware in those files but again came up unsuccessful. My next step now is to uninstall TCPIP and reinstall it again. That was a suggestion that was brought to my attention. With the the opensuse i have that loaded on a flash drive. The actually operating system on the the laptop is go figure, Windows Vista. Do you by chance have any other suggestions that i possibly have not tried? And i appreciate you taking the time to assist me with this issue. Thanks.
