    What are the specs (type, model, network interface card or adapter) of the computer you're trying to connect to the internet?

    If you don't know how to find that info out, say so, and we'll start over.

    Post the output of lspci command here.
    Code:
    su -
    /sbin/lspci
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You have to know the IP-address of your modem/router.
    And insert this in network card setup as gateway.

    You should reach your modem with a browser by typing it's IP-address in the address bar.

    I see several "unknown device" messages. This is most likely because your computer is newer than the Linux distro that you are using. You can't expect it to have drivers for hardware that didn't exist when it was released.

    Suse 10.1 is considered rather old. You should install the latest version, which is 11.2.

    BTW, your LAN device:
    Code:
    02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Unknown device 1969:1048 (rev b0)
    Uses the atl1 driver.

    Attansic L1 driver

    The best way to get this driver, is to use a newer kernel. In Suse, that means using a newer version of Suse (11.2).

    What you mean is the external IP-address you get from your internet provider.
    But your modem/router has always an internal (local) IP-address.
    This is usually 192.168.1.1, but could also be 192.168.0.1, it depends.

    To find this out type on the command line: ifconfig -a (for linux).
    For windows you use: ipconfig /all
    It will list all network interfaces.

    If you type the correct IP-address in a web-browser you get the modem setup screen.
    Because these modems are OS independent It's the same for all OS.

    But you have to have your network card (ethernet controller) correctly configured.
