Internet not working on new installation

I have just installed OpenSuse 10.3 on an HP Paviliton laptop.
The installation worked except for the internet conneciton.
It recognizes the ethernet and wireless cards:
Hewlett-Packard Company RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+
Hewlett-Packard Company BCM4318 (AirForce One 54g) 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller

The internet connection with my other computers is working
I have a network setup in which each computer or printer on the network is 192.168.1.x.

What do I need to do?

The ip addresses are dynamically assigned. I'm not sure exactly how this works. I think the modem/router or ethernet switch does this.
I have not edited resolv.conf.

nameserver 192.168.1.1
nameserver 63.81.160.11

I do know how to turn off iptables

Kamran Arshad

In resolv.conf enter the 192.168.1.1 IP :

#vi /etc/resolv.conf

nameserver 192.168.1.1








and then save the file.

resolv.conf already contains:
nameserver 192.168.1.1
nameserver 63.81.160.11
(says it was modfied by NetworkManager)
