Hey all! I am totally new to the linux world and recently ran into a problem with my internet access. Im using open suse 11.2 on a Dell Vostro 1520 laptop. I managed to get my wlan running and i can use firefox to access my router. In my router the laptop is also showing as connnected, dhcp reserved an ip for it.

Anyone got an idea? Im banging my head against a wall here. >:(
