Mostly when using a dial-up ISP people get their ip address, default gateway, and nameservers dynamically.
My guess is that because you have set these as static. 
YAST/Network Devices/Modems/Providers/Edit/Next - select:
Modify DNS when connected
I did this and it made no difference. I noted the settings in this box are now-
dial on demand - not selected
modify DNS when conn - selected
Automatically retrieve DNS - selected
Stupid mode - not selected
Ext Firewall Interface - not selected
Automatically retrieve DNS (or insert P: S: for Wannadoo) -
 I tried both automatic and these names, but no difference.
/IP Details - selt to Dynamic IP address as suggested.

I made these changes, restarted machine and dialling still seemed to work but internet browser gave the same unknown host message.
I also tried Willie's suggestion 'ping' for google after dialling in, and got a msg saying "connect : network is unreachable".
I have dumped windows altogether, so there's no going back!
Further suggestion anyone?
