Have you tried using another browser like Konqueror, assuming you've tried Firefox?

Can you do a telnet to port 80 on one of let's say Google's webservers? (or any other internet web server)?
Try something like:
Code:
telnet www.google.com 80
If this doesn't connect, I'm guessing there is a firewall blocking access to port 80 (on internet sites).
Ping may still work in such a case, since it doesn't use port 80 (HTTP).

If it does connect, it's a browser problem most likely.

Have enter proxy number in your browser(if there's one)?
Is your computer using static/auto?
Have you try auto configuration script = //localhost.localdomain ?
Have you try entering 127.0.0.1 into the browser URL column.?

All of that seems strange but usually fixed problem.

If it doesn't turn off LINUXSUSE firewall, then you should be up and running.
