      Need a little more information…In Yast2 does it see the NIC? If during the startup it posts “no interface found” I’m not sure I understand what you mean by I use Yast to fix the problem.

      You are able to add the NIC after boot up? Are you running the hardware detection in Yast after boot? A little more information is needed to help accurately troubleshoot this issue. Do you have the linux based drivers for the NIC?

      The first thing I would try is typing

      modprobe 8139cp
      or
      modprobe 8139too

      depending on the chip on your NIC.

      It’s not impossible that the Plug n Play in SuSE 9.2 could mess up. Let us know the results, as it will help us narrow it down.
