Can See Router But Not Lan Or Internet


I am running Icepack Linux 2.75.
I also have a LAN:
Belkin F5D6231-4 802.11b Wireless Router with WLAN and 4 wired ports
1 PC wired
1 PC wireless
Cable modem
dhcp assigned I.P. Addresses

I want to hard-wire my Linux Box to the network as well.
Linux can see my router. I can go to the i.p. address and edit my router settings from Linux.
However my router does not show the Linux box in the dhcp client list and I cannot see my other PCs or get to the internet.
I have tried both static and non-static I.P. address on Linux

What do I need to configure in order for my Linux box to be a part of the network?

Hey,
did you set up your resolv.conf properly?
There has to be 'nameserver 192.168.1.1'.
Replace by your Routers/Gateways/DNS IP.
This in most cases will do ... You also could try typing 'route add standard gw 192.168.1.1 eth0' (Also replace Router ip and device name by yours)

Can See Router But Not Lan Or Internet

I edited my resolv.conf and added the line:
nameserver 192.168.1.1
(I changed the IP Address to my router's)

This allowed me to start accessing the internet.
I still have not tried accessing the network but will soon. More questions will follow.
Thank you!
