Default SUSE 10.0 OSS Network Connection

I have installed SUSE 10.0 OSS and cannot get my network connection to operate correctly. I have installed and run Mandriva 10.1 and Fedora Core 5 without problems.
All of the correct drivers are installed and hardware was detected correctly. I am using a Biostar mobo with the nVidia2 chipset with built in audio and network controller.
I am behind a firewall called Smoothwall. I can ping other machines on the same network but cannot get any WAN connection at all.

Any ideas?

Default Your drivers may not be properly configured

Your drivers may not be properly configured and i suggest you download the windows drivers and then install them with ndiswrapper.... and such... good luck

To me this looks like a firewall configuration problem...

Question

I expected the responce of a firewall misconfiguration.
The Smoothwall is configured correctly, I can install Mandriva on the same box and it works just fine, also same with Windows. I tried disabling the SUSE firewall but it made no difference.

The output of ifconfig and route -nee reveal no problems.

But if you can ping other hosts in your local network, then the network on your SuSE system is working. The only thing I can think of then is the firewall.

What's the output of
Code:
iptables -L
?
