Why???? You said you have a wireless router, you have no reason to have Windows sharing anything Internet wise. Just use the wireless route's IP address as the gateway instead. Use you DSL providers dns info if need be by editing/creating the /etc/resolv.conf, example below;

nameserver XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
nameserver XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

Hint: most routers provide this information on their web interface or you can get it from your DSL provider.

Thanks for the reply Lenard, but i still can't connect to internet, i had follow your instruction except the nameserver address because the address assign from my isp automatically, is that become a problem?
for information, to connect my isp i must dial it from my windows computer, but even i had dialing my isp succesfully and my windows computer that connect hard wired to dsl router connect to internet, my other computers (windows and suse )that connect through wireless connection can't,
i've tested to ping my router and it works and then i try ping google.com and i got massage couldnt find host

OK,

First you said you have a wireless router, what make and model?
Which DSL provider do you have (just curious)??

You also say you have a "dsl router", do you perhaps really mean a dsl modem???
Is the connection from this "dsl router" Ethernet based??

If yes to the above two questions then you have a bad configuration, this is typical if setup following many ISP's directions. Many assume the end customer has only one system that is Windows based and only require a DSL modem and an Ethernet connection to the system. They supply 'software' which is not really required to "configure" or "setup" the DSL connection. What it really does is "brand" and "lock-in" the system to their DSL service and this software is basically impossible to completely remove.


A better configuration would be to connect the DSL modem to the wireless router (if it has physical connections to do so, the wlan port). The connect your hardwired Windows system to the wireless router if you have any Ethernet ports on the wireless router. The wireless router should be configured to supply DHCP address, but this is not required if your using assigned IP address's.

Maybe you should review your wireless router's manual.
