No internet connection through 3com router


I have installed SuSE 9 pro on a Compaq EVO N1015v and all works fine. But, for some reason I cannot get a connection to the internet, all I get is unknown host all the time.

I have a 3com officeconnect wireless adsl router, but I am using a cable in the back just to get the ethernet working (planning to try wireless later). The ethernet works fine, eth0 gets an ip address from the router and I can connect to/ping other addresses on the network.

The prob is when I use Konqueror it can't get through the router out to the internet. I have tried with a DCHP address and a static address but there is no difference. Am I doing something wrong ?

Help would be greatly appreciated....

If you are getting unknown host, most likely it is a DNS problem. Make sure you have DNS servers setup for eth0.

Try to ping

If this works, then ping if this doesn't work, then it is a DNS problem. Make sure you have defined your dns servers in you network card setup.
