OpenSuse issues on Dell Latitude D830?

I have a laptop, and the wireless and cable worked fine for a while, but one day, for some odd reason, the wireless and network cable just stopped working. I'd connect to the web, and I would get output using "ifconfig" and the GUI wireless signal. When I hook up the wire, it detects it. However, no matter what I can't load any web pages. The wire does work in another house, and my windows partition utilizes these devices well. Any ideas?

Additionally, I am able to log into my wireless router and change configurations, but that's about it :/.

What do you're network devices tell you ?
Does it recognize you're eternet card properly ?
Assuming you use one.
Does the LED shows that is a physical connection ?
Does the configuration of router changed ?
Because sometimes it happens when it is unplug for to long

What about your DNS settings? How do you know your wireless card and LAN interface isn't working? What type of troubleshooting steps have you taken? Post them.
