FC4 Networking Not Working (New to Linux)


Greetings all,

I'm another one new to Linux. Just installed FC4 (wish to be consistent with the office) on an old desktop, and can't seem to get the Network to work past my router. I am trying to use a static IP, as I hope to build a basic web server. I've looked through many posts and nothing seems to be working. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

DETAILS:
- I am able to ping the router (192.168.100.1)
- Pining an external Domain name = unknown host
- I've turned off the FC4 firewall

Hardware:
PC: PIII 450 / ~384 RAM (NIC = Net Gear 10/100/1,000)
Router: Linksys BEFW11S4

SETTINGS:
Desktop->System Settings->Network:
Devices: eth0 (active)
Hardware: Realteck Semiconductor Co., Ltc. RTL-8169 Gig...
IPSec: Nothing
DNS:
- Hostname: localhost.localdomain
- Primary DNS: 167.206.251.80
- Secondary DNS: 167.206.251.81
- Tertiary DNS: 167.206.251.16
- DNS Search Path: localdomain
Hosts: Nothing

CONTENTS of /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0:
IPV6INIT=no
ONBOOT=yes
USERCTL=yes
PEERDNS=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
IPADDR=192.168.100.101
GATEWAY=191.168.100.1

EDIT: I also noticed that my routing table seems off, but I'm not sure how to revise this? Result of route -n:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway GenMask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.100.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0

Any suggestions? If not, is there a "wipe the slate clean and start from scratch guide" on just networking?

Thanks, in advance, for any assistance you can offer!
- Ben

Greetings all. I was able to resolve the problem. My update, as indicated, suggested there was a problem with my routing table. I found the command line:

route add default gw xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx = your router IP address / default gateway. Aftre running this command and updating the default routing table, everything worked great. Phew!
