SuSE internet connection

I'm running SuSE 10 and the internet is not connected. I have dsl with a westell 327w modem/router and also a linksys router/switch ran as a switch(but i'm not connected directly to that).

Everything was working in Linux fine, didn't have to set up anything and it worked with this same setup. That was about a week ago, i'm dual booting with Windows. I was going to get in and play with a suse a few minutes ago and my net wasn't working, and I don't have enough know how to try and fix it. When I go to a browser and type in, it takes me to my linksys switch, which it shouldn't. It should take me to the router/modem as it does in windows. Everything is working fine in windows. How do I diagnose this seemingly simple problem?

Lightbulb Use Yast2

use yast2 to configure the DSL/ADSL modem and to setup .

you have to setup the DSL LAN "ip" and "dns" and/or "default gateway" address for that "eth0" interface (all information is provided by you DSL Internet service provider , if not then ask for it.), which will be used to negotiate the connection and username+password when you dial for the connection.

Once you have setup the modem/LAN ard by Yast2, then run "KInternet" ("kinternet" from shell / terminal). The main window might be already running in the taskbar(?) in the right pan of the panel , left to the clock. Place the mouse over all icons present to hover/popup it's name, where you can identify the program. Right clicking the icon will bring menu which can be used to do the following :==>>

You have to define the interface "dsl0" (which is the default ) and setup the proper settings.

After that from Kinternet you create a dial up account.

then right click on the KInternet icon and click "Dial-in" to connect and "Hang-up" to disconnect.

It will be best to ask a general guide from your ISP for Linux setup.
Hope it will help.
