That's the problem.
Obviously I have made a mistake. In this file are the ip's from my router - and so I get no external addresses.
I edited the file and put the addresses from the name servers in it and then BINGO!
I must have done something wrong in Yast when I configured the nic. I must read my manuals again!
For what I know, I should not explicit use those addresses because they can change ( I'm connected to a cable network)
Thanks for the quick answer.
