Angry Wifi connection on openSUSE 11.2 - ping works but can't browse to any site

After some struggle on recently installed openSUSE 11.2 on laptop, I was able to start wireless network on laptop after some struggle and it is connecting to wifi hotspot and I am able ping any site ( But as soon as I start to access google from firefox or any web browser it doesn't work and ping also stops. It will work only if I restart the wireless tethering on my phone.

My laptop is older sony vaio VGN560P and using samsung galaxy s2 as a wifi hotspot.

One more thing I noticed, when I try to stop wireless tethering on phone it shows "Error" but re-starts ok.

I am really stuck and any help is appreciated.

wireless connection


I am not sure why you are experiencing difficulties but I would suspect the browser config itself.
You should recheck all the settings including format selected. (DCHP or other)

Hope this helps ...
