DWL-122 only connects to router not to internet

i managed to get the D-Link wireless usb-adapter to work in SUSE 10.0 and i am able to confiure the AP (DI-624+) from this computer, however i can't connect to internet through this device, i scanned the forums but can't find a clue to what to do next, the device is connected to my at the moment totally open network and is "associated", speed 48 Mbps, and is transmitting ( Kinternet), any suggestions?

make sure that you configured a default gateway.. you probably missed that, so configure the default gateway as the ip of your router.. from then on you'll probably be able to connect to the outside world.. for me that's in the "/etc/network/interfaces" file

this is for my wireless nic:

iface ra0 inet static

or run this command at boot..

/sbin/route add default gw (replace with the ip of your router)

(hmm seems i'm using both)
