SuSE 9.2 on dell inspiron 500m

I'm really happy that i installed SuSE on this machine, everything seems to be working fine, except for one thing, that of course is the network.

Its not that i cant get a IP address from the router, but i cannot connect to neither the Internet nor other computers on the intranet. When i run ifconfig, i can see that i have received a IP. But if i try to ping other computers, OR my router, i either get a error, or i just simple wont obtain any contact at all... Its a bit hard for me to get the outputs, so every proposal would be appreciated. I'm a complete newbie, have only used Debian, so don't expect me to know where different config files are placed, i just don't know.
