I used Yast, I use a static IP address I mean i give the address, getway and DNS. Suse recognize the name of the wireless network, the name that is in the router. But I can do ping to my self but i cant do ping to the getway.
I hope you can understand what i mean.

Thank you very much.

alright first you need to check if you have wireless tools installed (not too familiar with suse not sure if it comes with it or not) you can do this by simply typing in

"iwconfig"

at the terminal (you might need to be root). if it isn installed it should just simply not recognize the command. if it comes up with a list of your network devices then its installed. comfirm with iwconfig what your wireless card is listed (it is probably wlan0). then your going to set up the essid. if your wireless is listed as something other than wlan0 then replace the commands with the right one.

"iwconfig wlan0 essid your_essid_here"

then your going to switch to mode managed

"iwconfig wlan0 mode Managed"

if you have a wep key or something of that sort your going to do this

iwconfig wlan0 key yourkey

if you dont have a wep key or something of that sort then skip that step.now you need either dhcpcd or dhcp client. im guessing suse would probably come with dhcp client so if thats the case your going to

dhclient wlan0

if you dont have dhcpclient then look into aquiring it. that is pretty much it. if you need me to clarify something feel free to ask.

Probably you missed

ifconfig wlan0 up

before "dhclient wlan0"

I am not sure for Suse, I am using ndiswrapper for all my Linux boxes. It works fine with most of wireless adapters. I strongly recommend it to use
