what is your config for DSL Devices and for Providers in yast(under Network Devices->DSL)?

also try using kinternet to see if you're connected or to select a connection and connect.

if kinternet doesn't connect you to the internet, try looking at its log(right click on system tray icon->View Log)

broadband connection problem in open suse 10.3

And if you,re broadband is connected with a Ethernet card check the settings of you,re ethenet card, suse has first to detect the ethernet card and then the broadband connection
So if the settings of the ethernet card is wrong there is no broadband

all the best

This is a duplicate...reported for closure.

In your other thread, I asked for some more information and asked you to run some tests. If you do not respond to such requests, it will be hard to help you.
