first check your Ethernet interface using #ifconfig command.see the output of this command form very first line. The first word shows your Ethernet interface for example ens OR en0. use that interface to query... If this solution will help you please let me know....

Try sudo ifconfig -a maybe to start. Yast or even ip command or others may help.

Which command gives you the output in the title? What version of SuSE are you using? Try running 'ifconfig' by itself.

check what network emulation is default in your emulator

you didn't even say which emulator your using!

don't bother hacking linux commands until you know what network your "supposed to be able to see". it might even be disabled by default.
