When I ping an address (e.g. 22.214.171.124) the

I can ping the router and the entire home LAN.
Where should I be looking? FWIW, my resolv.conf file

Do you Yahoo!?
The New Yahoo! Search - Faster. Easier. Bingo.
hmmm...this sounds like a DNS problem. So, your suse machine now has 2
NICS? Or did you replace the one that was in there, so you still have 1
NIC? I'd just redo the config. for the single NIC. Run yast and make
sure you remove any NIC settings and add your single NIC - at least if
you do have 1 NIC, the same would apply with 2, but don't touch your
network settings for the other NIC.
Also, just to be sure - are u running any firewall on your suse box?
You have a router so that should be taking care of NAT or firewall...but
just want to be sure.
