I can ping yahoo easily my connection is wired; through a router/firewall to the internet. I should also mention that I am running a fresh install of openSUSE 11.2
I had internet on other versions of Linux before (Fedora, Kubuntu). I think I screwed up something when I did the network setup in the install process for Fedora. I have since deleted the partition and installed openSUSE and the networking still does not work.
Also what is the command set to disable desktop effects from the fail safe command line?

if not i’m pretty sure you can turn up a workable solution from here
by using DNS as one of the search terms and limiting your search
