I need some pointers to what surely is a very simple resolution if
there are any to be had. There arte no Linux folks available to me
here in this town. It’s not that the documentation does not hold my
answers, rather that I’m dyslexic, and it usually fails me everytime.
My install is on an Intel x86_64 machine from a single clean
You may be new to SLES but it sounds like you do have Linux experience.
You know then there are always minor differences in the way things are
configured from one distribution to the next. The best way to learn
about those differences is by reading the documentation although, in
your case, I can see where that can be problematic.
You do not say much about your hardware or what you have configured. My
first guess would be that you have either a driver or a configuration
I would begin with YaST Networking. Here you can specify whether you
want to use ifup or NetworkManager. The rest is pretty straight forward
if you understand network basics.
If that pointer doesn’t resolve your issue for you, we’ll need more
information. Please post output from the following commands:

Thanks very much for the assistance! You may have something with the “driver” issue, not sure yet. Here is the output from the 3 networking commands you so kindly gave:

I’m going to get a cheat sheet of Linux networking commands, which will likely aid me a fair amount.
I have survived on guesswork, hunches, and still at 67, a pretty good memory. The Dyslexia is due to my particular personality defects and extreme preoccupation.
The machine is a small form factor Intel Core2 duo, has an integrated NIC: so called “Gigabit”, 3GB DDR3 RAM, a 1TB HDD, and seems to run well with this new OS, which I really like; but I’ll need to get it on the web reasonably soon, and must test it on my LAN first.
I am not good at any of this, but I do remember most of what I learn, and know to read the files before messing with anything serious, such as when it instructs you as to what populates it; something I just learned in the last few days.
Hoping it won’t do any harm, and definitely not spamming this forum, here is what I do: playguitarvideosdotcom & craigtarwaterdotcomslashguitar.
I’l look deeper into Linux networking, some new cheat sheets and report back when I solve this issue. I do see a couple of things in the output that I’m curious as to whether they’re correct.
