    You must setup your network card and DSL connection properly in Yast.

    Set as gateway the IP-address of your modem.
    This is mostly 192.168.1.1.

    Not sure how to set it up in a VM, but do you get anything when you run:
    Code:
    ifconfig -a

    With the VM you set it up as Briging Networking and basicly what it does is that it uses the Windows NIC card. So you have to configure on the Suse Linux the resolv.conf file (DNS) and the proper defautl gateway and you are set to go.

    Basicly "ifconfig -a" to see if you have any NIC in the VMWare setup.
