Poor Internet connection in SUSE 9.2
I am using SUSE 9.2. I recently switched DSL Providers from Earthlink to Qwest. Now, with Qwest, I am able to connect to my start page and the SUSE/Novell home page, but nothing else. When I try to go to other sites, the attempt times out. The SUSE Update module fails to connect with the server, so I can't get any updates. My e-mail (Earthlink) works fine. I used the YaST module to make what I thought were the correct changes to my network and DSL connections, but evidently, I've done something wrong. Any ideas?

On console try to use ping www."any adress you know" and check the ping time.

Sorry for the delay in reply. I "pinged" with time=.05 ms. I then pinged ( time=121 ms. The sequence repeated with the longest time=130 ms. BTW, I run a dual-boot system with win98SE on a seperate drive and SUSE 9.2 on another. There are no issues on the win98SE system. I found I had not set up my DNS server so I did that. I then reconfigured my NIC from "automatic address setup via DHCP" to "static address setup" with the address provided by my IP. I then opened Firefox and attempted to go to several different sites. At first, I was able load 4 different sites without delay, but then this stopped. I was only able to reach my start page. Also, when my NIC was configured to use DHCP, it would/could not connect to the server. Is my NIC config the problem?

If you are using a router you have to configure suse to use it and enter the dns addresses for it.
