With the info that you have given, one can only say "configure it".

If you give some more detail, you will probably get more usefull answers.
  1. how do you connect (telephone, DSL, cableTV, ...)
  2. which modem do you have (internal, external, usb, serial, ...)

I have tried a wired connection and a wireless connection. I have a broadcom network card and I have an external modem.

You can try using YaST2 to configure your modem. Is this a phone modem that you have of a DSL modem. There is a separate configuration module for both. There is also a network config module in yast where you can configure your network device. Depending on the wireless device you have, you may have more work to do before Linux recognizes your device and loads the kernel module it needs. Look at this sites wiki for instructions. The way to go, a native driver or ndiswrapper will depend on which controller chip your wireless device uses. The results of "lspci -v" and "lspci -n" will indicate the device used and it's manufacturer code. From there Googling for "linux wireless (<device-code> OR <device-name>)" will help you find the best way to go.

This might be one place to start: OpenSUSE 10.2 "Accessing the Internet" doc
In addition, you might also want to open up YAST and look under "Network Devices" -> "Network Card" to make sure your card(s) is(are) being recongnized properly.

What do you see if you bring up a console window and type (as root) "ifconfig"? Is the problem here that you don't have INTERNET access, or that you aren't getting an IP address from your modem (assuming your modem provides one)?

In a console type "su root". You will then be prompted for the root password. Any commands after his point will be carried out with root privileges.

Something like this:

Code:
you@yourmachine:~> su root
Password:
yourmachine:/home/you #
