    are you using DHCP? try this -open a terminal ( e.g. xterm, konsole, gnome-terminal) and type /sbin/ifconfig - if eth0 comes up then it should at least be configured - here is what i get.

    [pbharris@bugs ~]/sbin/ifconfig 
    eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF  
              inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
              UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

    Hi I have tried both ifconfig and ifup eth0 with no luck but when I was looking at the "inet addr" I looked at mine at it was completely diffrent. it read "inet6 addr:fe80::220:edff:fe5c:2b3a/64" now I have no clue what this means ??? but it can't be a good thing.

    Can you post the output of ifconfig? If not, did you have a similar output to PBHarris?

    CP my ifconfig output is almost the same excpet for that "inet addr".

    Re:no internet plz help

    The Difference between the two is what you posted is called a Mac address. Its a hexidecimal representation of the "ID" for your network card. As a general question, when you configured networking during installation, what ip address or interface did you put in as your gateway? What ip address did you put in as your DNS servers?

    Re:no internet plz help

    oh...well during the install I didn't know what to enter for the IP gateway or DNS shouldn't it have suse done it all by itself???

    Re:no internet plz help

    Not really. Im guessing the ip addess of your router is Need to make sure that your gateway is set to that ip address. The route command should show you where your gateway is pointed. As far as dns, you need to find out what the ip addresses are for your isp's name servers and put them in. Im not sure where these things are in Suse.

    please open the file /etc/modules.conf and see if there is anything in that that says alias eth0 <something> - this is to load the driver.

    Try this. I assume you're on cable modem. Become root user with the "su" command, and then type "/sbin/dhcpcd". If this command doesn't exist, search for dhcpcd on google or freshmeat and you'll come up with something to install.
