How to connect to the internet with cable modem and SUSE 9.1?

Can anyone help me in setting up my Ethernet network card to be able to connect to the Internet? If it helps, I'm on a Dell Dimension 9100 running SUSE 9.1 with KDE. Using the Internet works fine with windows. The ethernet cable connects from the computer to a router (which also has the cable of my other computer), and the router is connected to the cable modem. Thanks in advance.

Hello and welcome to LQ!

you will need to configure your card and connection in SUSE. (this should be under a control panel of some sort)
can you ping? (open up commandline and ping - google ping for more info)
if you open the browser (such as firefox) what error message does it give, if any?

does this link help?

please don't get upset- I need to know what the problem is before I can give the exact answer.
