SuSE 9.0 Wireless Internet

I'm a fairly new Linux user. I was messing around with Redhat9 for a while and got tired of its not user friendly interface. I downloaded SuSe9 and like its interface much better.
Here's the problem:
I'm trying to get internet going wirelessly. I have it connected to the router fine. I can ping my router from Konsole but I cant resolve any hosts.
I try to browse to or or where ever and it doesnt work. The error messsage is "Unknown host"

What am I doing wrong? Keep in mind that I can go to my router via browsing to the or I can ping it too. I just cant leave my network.

Any suggestions would be helpful!
