cant get onto the net properly!

Hi there all, and thankyou for having me at this lovely place.

I'm totally sick of Windows and want to learn how to use linux.

I'm a newb as well thats why i'm here.

Ok heres the problem, well sort of. I installed Suse 10 yesterday, I have Suse running, everything is fine except i cant access the internet properly. I can access web pages with ip addresses (ie) my isp's. I rang my isp but they do not help people with linux, apparently "because it isnt popular enough". I have adsl+2 and it is frustrating that i cant access the internet without typing in ip addresses. I have put dns on in the router.

Another question when i type the @ symbol and # symbol they dont show up, how do i fix this?

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
