check Internet connection?

I am using SUSE OS and want to check internet connection...
I have tried:
ping -c3 google.com
The output i have got is:
Unknown host google.com

does it means that i do not have Internet connection??

Or please help me with any Command to find Internet connection?

Thanks for any help.

ping localhost to see if networking is on
ping <your IP> (as found from /sbin/ifconfig) to see if network card is working
ping <your gateway> (as found from /sbin/route) to see if you're talking to the network
ping <your DNS server> (as found in /etc/resolv.conf) to see if it's up
host google.com <your DNS server> to see if it's working
