Unhappy SuSE10.2 networking issue Inter. connect. issue


Hello, I have installed SuSE10.2 and I am unable to connect to the internet? I tried using Yast during setup w/ no success. Question what should my firewall be set to [internal or external]?
Thanks so much

you need to give us a lot more information than that... what works, what doesn't? (host, ping, wget, firefox etc...) what kind of internet connection do you have?

Unhappy SuSE 10.2 inter. conn.

I'm sorry, I should have been more thorough. I'm dual booting xp pro/suse 10.2, tcp/ip--cable modem.
W/out rebooting and running ping etc....all I can tell you is that on intitial opening of firefox, the google page displays, then it tells me firefox is in offline mode.
please advise, thanks in advance.

ok, so are you getting your ip from dhcp? what does ifconfig say about the ip you have on the interface? do you even have an interface listed in ipconfig? can you ping the router? can you ping google? can you resolve google's ip address via "host google.com"?
