That's a pretty big question.

How are you trying to connect to the internet?
- Through a wired network connection
- Through a wireless connection
- Through a modem
- Through some other method

What distribution are you using, and what version?

If you tell us more about your situation we will be able to provide answers geared toward it.

I think you could use YaST for configuring the Wireless on your machine. Please also check the URL which could be of help.
