you need to run the
ifconfig
command.
it should give you output.
try
/sbin/ifconfig

humph!...and I thought ifconfig wasnt working...
true you know that, but I need to know how you have setup your network inorder to help you. so if you had pasted it here, it would have been alot easier
anyway,
open your Yast control center
click on network devices, and set your ip, dns server and gateway there.
restart your network services
/etc/init.d/network restart

Can you ping google.com?
If not go to one of the windows boxes and ping google.com
Go back to *nix box and ping the IP that you resolved on the windows box..
Does it resolve?

Even using the IP address? Or did you still just try the host name?

And how do you lock down your router? Are you sure you don't lock down via MAC address, and you forgot to allow your NIC to get through?
