Browser not connecting to internet

i have SUSE 8 evaluation ver. which directly runs from my CD ROM i.e. without installing on HDD.

I am able to dial out and connect to our Internet service provider. However, when i click on browser, it does not display anything.

I have checked proxy settings and DNS settings. Both are correct. IP is set to Automatic as suggested by our ISP.

Can anyone throw some more light on any other settings required or where i'm making mistake.!

Does other internet services work, or is it just the browser? Try to ping a web adress. If it works, try another browser Doesn't work? If you type ifconfig, does the output for eth0 match the settings your isp has given you? If not, see the man page for ifconfig on adjusting the values (gateway, netmask and so on). Well, I've never used a modem... Is your network connection out still called eth0? Perhaps a modem is handled in a completely different way?
