Question Wireless Network Card Sync with Browser.

I got my wireless network driver successfully loaded using ndiswrapper on my laptop which has SUSE 10.0. My wireless Network card now allows me to log in to my router and I am now able to ping other computers on my network. But for some odd reason I cannot access the web. Other computers on my network have no problem accessing the web through the router. Also, my laptop is a dual boot system with WinXP. When on Windows, websites are accessible, so I know the problem isnt in the router. Can someone please help me to figure out why I cannot browse web sites.

Usually, when you can access the LAN but not the internet, it means that you don't have the default gateway set, or you don't have the IP addresses of the DNS servers.

I fixed the problem

I opened /etc/resolv.conf with Kvim
added the line nameserver (router IP)

Now I can browse web sites.
