Can't connect to internet using linux
I am completely new to Linux. Because of a single problem, I had to install Linux many a times on my PC.
I have got a xDSL connection on my PC at home.When I manually configure the IP address, network host, default gateway and DNS server entries, I am not able to connect to the internet. I have also got Windows installed on my system. While using Windows, I can easily connect using the same IP address, network host, default gateway and DNS server entries. I can also ping the default gateway from my Windows. But, when I try to ping the default gateway from Linux, it says, "connect:Network not reachable".
I tried installing Red Hat, Fedora, Ubuntu, but everytime I faced the same problem.
