if you are connecting with a cable to the router then there is no configuration to do... but you've not said anythign at all about how you actually go about conencting with your internal network. if we have to suss it out for you, what does, for example, the output of "ifconfig" and "route -n" say? are you expecting the wireless side to also be working already?

bin the usb cable, let's do it properly...

you need to run them as root, or use the full path, /sbin/ifconfig and /sbin/route.

How Do I Connect To Internet Using Fedora

I just read acid's reply (/sbin/ifconfig). While I didn't post the question, the answer was a big help to a question I had. Thanks.
