Network Stopped Working


This is a very newbie question:

I've installed Suse 9.3 on a DELL Latitude D800. After the install, I ran YaST and did a few updates. I was messing around with the firewall settings and the network stopped working. I've since disabled the firewall, but still no network. It does get an IP from the DHCP server, but I can't browse the network or surf the web....

yup.

To add on further, I know it's not a hardware issue, this laptop dual-boots xp and suse 9.3. the windoze OS works just fine...

I actually can't exactly understand wht the word "network stopped working" means ??

do you mean the whole network with the internet stopped working or just the ability of browsing other computers stopped working ??

Ah, you just tipped me off to the right direction. I assumed that dhcp was pulling the dns settings. I had to check the box to enable dhcp to assign name servers. problem solved... :-)
