Internet not working with OpenSuse when accessing LAN

by UTF-8   Last Updated September 11, 2019 17:01 PM

I installed OpenSuse Tumbleweed on a computer that previously only ran Kubuntu 18.04. With Kubuntu 18.04, I can still browse the internet and access other computers in my LAN with 20 to 30 MB/s.

With OpenSuse, I can access the internet perfectly fine as long as I don't access computer in my LAN. While I access other computers, however, the internet connection for all devices in my network breaks down completely. I cannot even load example.com on my phone then. Access to other computers only happens at 0.3 MB/s if I connect to the router via an Ethernet cable, and with 0.6 MB/s if I connect to the router via wifi. As long as I don't do that, I can access the internet with 20 MB/s (I have a 160 Mbit/s contract).

Now that I can't access the internet with any device as soon as one device starts misbehaving seems like a problem with my router. But my OpenSuse installation is misbehaving.

I checked that all the graphical network settings are the same on Kubuntu and OpenSuse. At least as far as I can tell (same desktop environment but different versions of the configuration tool, so it doesn't look exactly the same but everything is as equivalent as it seems to get).

       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

When I connect the computer via an Ethernet cable to a different computer, I can transfer data at a rate of 10 MB/s. I can use wifi to connect to the router and access the internet at the same time.

How do I get OpenSuse to work normally in the network without a hacky setup as described in the previous paragraph?
