your numbers aren't the same, you're saying the ip address for the lan is and you're trying to ping

if that's just a typo, check your netmask on the linux machine, and run /sbin/route -n to check your routing has the correct netmask.

thank you for your replay
sorry but from yast i gave the static ip for the network card and destination (to the lan)
i do the comand /sbin/route -n and the results:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface U 0 0 0 eth0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

from yast i reinstall the dhcpcd and i leave the dhcp client
The isdn lan moden is one of 3Com
Thank you
