PLEASE HELP!! Easy Question On Connecting to the internet

Right i have a small problem that im sure is really really easy to fix

My setup:

Suse 9.0:

Belkin Wireless router -> Netgear MA101 usb -> Windows Machine

I install suse 9.0 from the FTP server to test it out before my package version that i brought came... and it work... set it up using the install program... forwarded the FTP stuff on my windows machine... it installed...

Come to try and connect to the net after the install with no luck... iv been playing around for about 3 hours and i cant find an answer...
