Unhappy Browsers not working

I'm feeling fairly thick at the moment! I am using Suse 8.1, connection is fine and stable with kinternet. I can ping IP addresses but no way. DNS addresses are entered of ISP provider but I cannot get anywhere with konqueror, galeon or mozilla. Any help out there please?
