Ndiswrapper for internal wireless No internet but can Access Router

I am trying to use Ndiswrapper with my windows driver for my wireless card. It sounds and looks like everything is installed correctly execpt for 2 things, kinternet wont start right, and when i browse with the web browser i can only access my router? any suggestions

here is the exact Kinternet error- (Upon searching i saw alot of people have this error with their regular dial up modems, so i dont know):

Error - KInternet
Connection to local and remote server refused. Maybe smpppd is not running or your are not member of the group "dialout". Also check the server settings in the dialog "Various Settings"

since im a newbie here is what i hense found out :

but kinternet is still not working

I'd suggest not using Kinternet for wireless connections.

What Suse version do you have? 10.0?

I'd suggest installing netapplet for 10.0 and knemo, both of which are available in Software Management.

As for your problem on connecting to the internet, you might want to use the command shell. Open a Root shell and type "ifconfig". That shows you what network devices are on and what their IP address is and whats happening w/ your packets.
"iwconfig" shows you what wireless network you're connected too.

Chances are if you can get to your router, but not the internet, then its a DNS problem. I'd then suggest going to Control Center, Yast Modules, Network, Network Devices. Then you should see your wireless card there and I'd take a look at your hostname and DNS information there. My dad's machine had a wierd glitch where Suse grabbed the wrong info for the DNS server IP address and I had to manually configure it.

Hope this helps
