Can't connect to internet with Opensuse 10.2

:confused Hi everyone,I'm new to linux and recently downloaded and installed Opensuse 10.2 on my laptop which is a Compaq EVO N620C.I also have Win Xp installed(dual boot).It works fine,but when I try to access the internet with Konquerer or FireFox no page is displayed, no access.I configured my network card the traditional way using YAST.I set a static IP,subnet,gateway and nameservers addresses cause I'm connecting from my workplace which is a workgroup wired LAN which uses a router.
I also tried disabling the firewall but with no result.

With Win Xp I work fine.Does anyone pls have the know how of doing it?Thx

Is your network interface up "ifconfig" if you see its up you can try "traceroute" to see where the connection fails to the outside but i think that its not a firewall issue may be nameserver or adapter problem.
