I'm not sure about SUSE because I run Xandros, but how are you connecting to the internet? If you are using USB I've heard that can be a problem with Linux. Also if you are running a firewall, try disabling temporarily.

The only other suggestion is if they have a forum for SUSE is to try a posting on there.

There are very real issues with USB modems, though support for the frog (Alcatel) is pretty much complete.

I bought a Ethernet Modem/Router specifically to overcome this problem, as the Internet connection via Ethernet is no problem.

click here for a very helpful forum full of knowledgeable Linux folk and do a search for similar issues. If you want to post a question, you have to join (just like here it's free).

There are a small but increasing number of Linux users here (my observation), so if you find the answer, please post back for us all to see.
