View Full Version : Network bridging and ADSL

August 23rd, 2008, 04:00 PM
Greetings to the best linux community :)

I'm a traitor who moved to OpenSuse when 11 came out :p

I have some issues with opensuse, and tried posting to their forum, but I don't think I'll get a reply any time soon, so I decided to try here.
I'll just copy-paste from thread I started there:


I wanted to setup a bridge, to get host interface networking in VirtualBox. I managed to do that and have a working network between host and guest.

However, my ADSL is not working after the bridge was set up.Then I deleted everything and setup eth0 and dsl0 again. Everything was working fine, no matter whether eth0 is set up with no IP, static IP or DHCP assigned one. ADSL stops working as soon as I add eth0 to the bridge...

All configuration is done through YAST (i tried manually, following this:
http://en.opensuse.org/Virtualbox_Network_Bridging#Basics_of_Bridging_in_ OpenSuSE_10.3
and results were the same)

eth0: no IP, promisc;
dsl0: DHCP

Any help appreciated. Thank you.
