If I remember correctly, SUSE has some patches for KDE3 for something 
called "Network status", i.e. have applications react to changes in 
the "online" state of a system, e.g. to avoid repeated failure warnings if a 
server couldn't be reached.

It is probably not detecting the offline->online change correctly.

I agree with Anne that it is probably best to try asking on a SUSE support
