Can't connect to the Internet (DSL).

I recently installed SUSE LINUX 9.3, and I am very new to the OS. Everything went just right in the installation except for my inability to connect to the internet. My network card shows up as being recognized. I connect to the internet through a Netgear Router(RP614v2), and my router connects to the internet through a Westell Wirespeed DSL modem. (Another interesting thing I might note is that the indicator light for my computer on my router shows up as orange while all of the other indicator lights for my other computers show up as green.) I appreciate any help I can get.

The connection log looks like this:

SuSE Meta pppd (smpppd-ifcfg), Version 1.58 on linux.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
