can't find address for `www.suse.de` warning, address lookup does not work

Hallo!I am trying to use a ZTE AC2726 USB EVDO Modem on openSuSE Linux 11.3 Gnome to connect to the internet.

I have edited the /etc/wvdial.conf file as follows

[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 57600
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init3 =
Area Code =
Phone =#777
Username =card
Password =6485
Ask Password = 0
Dial Command = ATDT
Stupid Mode = 1
Compuserve = 0
Force Address =
Idle Seconds = 300
DialMessage1 =
DialMessage2 =
ISDN = 0
Auto DNS = 1

When I execute the wvdial command on the terminal the following error appears

joey-suse:~ # wvdial
→ WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
→ Cannot get information for serial port.
→ Initializing modem.
→ Sending: ATZ

The /etc/resolv.conf file has the DNS addresses as below

nameserver 212.49.70.22

nameserver 212.49.70.23

How do I resolve this and connect to the internet?

Thanks.

see that “Connected” ? it means you ARE connected to your internet
service provider (ISP) via phone line through that ISPs answering end
modem which is (or should be) on the net…

why your initial modem connection script want to connect to
www.suse.de” i have no idea…but, i believe if you open a browser
and put that in the URL blank and hit enter you will see you are on
the internet…try it, and let us know how it goes…

I cannot access the internet from the browser.

Try to ping 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4. If one of those work than add a line with the one that works to /etc/resolv.conf. For example

nameserver 8.8.4.4

if You’re able to ping 8.8.4.4.

Best regards,
Greg

wait…i find it almost impossible to connect to anything in
Kenya…seems to be NO DNS available anywhere…see if you can use a
browser to get to any of these:

http://www.google.co.ke/
http://www.kenya.go.ke/
http://www.kemu.ac.ke/

if you can browse to those but not www.suse.dk then i can’t see how
the problem is within your computer (i could be wrong) but as far as i
can see since it is impossible for me to ping any of those something
is bad wrong at the African Internet Numbers Registry…

contact your service provider, jambonet.co.ke.
Telkom Kenya Jambonet network for advice…

before you do a lot of fiddling with YOUR machine, which seems to well
connect to your service provider…
