Start out with windows. What do the instructions say about how to configure windows? That will be a first clue about how to setup linux. If in doubt, take a look at the setup for the Windows ethernet card. Does it get an ip automatically? What about the gateway and dns settings? If those are all automatic, then are you running either dhclient3 or dhcpcd on your suse box? I'd ask you about network configuration files, but I suspect that suse is configured differently from debian.
In the end, the way it is configured in Windows is the way it'll be configured in suse. It's just a matter of understanding what that means in the suse context.
