I have seen ipv6 problems numerous times on other threads. It may be loaded as a module. Try removing it.

Can you log into your modem?

You also may want to try knoppix. Its a live linux CD that does some amazeing automatic hardware detection. It doesn't touch the hard drive (unless you tell it to), but runs soley in memory. You may find it to be a different perspective. I know that you aren't on the net personally, but you could download it from where ever you're posting from, or ask a friend to.

(check out the configuration button in the lower left corner, next to the K menu)

Again, if it is possible to log into your modem, then I say the odds are strong that the problem is there.

I GOT IT!!!!!!!!

Thanks so much for your support. I finally found my problem when I looked at a thread in the Suse column. Harryc put a comment in there about making sure that the /etc/resolv.conf file to make sure that instead of the modem IP being listed that the computer IP was listed. (I already was in static mode.) Frankly, the connection still seems to be a bit slow, but that could be Saturday night net usage, I suppose. Or the fact that I'm using an old version of Mozilla, I'm sure.

Now to go get firefox and thunderbird ...
