SuSE 9.1 Internet Configuration..?

I've installed SuSE 9.1 personal but I'm having problems configuring my internet connection (DSL)
I connect through a 10/100 ethernet card which then runs to a wireless gateway/router (because we have 2 wireless PC's in house) and then connects to our DSL modem.
I have all of the IP addresses, DNS numbers etc, but I'm unfamiliar with the terms and functions associated with the fields provided in the Linux configuration set up (YaST).

I'm familiar with a Windows based connection, so I could probably solve my problem if someone were to provide the linux equivilent to these windows terms, and functions.
Can someone walk me through setting up my internet connection or possibly provide a guide/documentation associated with setting up a connection?

Post here the parameters suse is asking you, so we can try to help.

I didn't understand quite well: your eth card is wireless? Do you have drivers for it?
