able to ping router but no internet

Basically, my problem is that I have a wireless network configured and able to ping my router, but am not able to access webpages. I am running an orinoco wireless card with FC 4. My dhcp network has WEP configured. Could someone please tell me how to fix this? What should all the relevant conf files have in them? This network has worked in the past with this computer, but started acting like this when I reconfigured the connection after changing it.

Do you have the routers IP address set as your default gateway?

You can ping your router, but can you ping Can you ping If yes on the former, it's most likely a problem with your browser. If the latter but not the former, it's a DNS issue. If neither, make sure your modem is getting sync to your ISP.

Please post the output of the route command.

Mine looks like this:

Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface     *        U     0      0        0 eth1
link-local      *          U     0      0        0 eth1
loopback        *            U     0      0        0 lo
default         UG    0      0        0 eth1
Against default is my routers IP address. Yours should be there for you to access the net through your router.
