Can't help with most of them, but to find your ip look in (at least on my Rh9 system):

/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0

On my system this contains

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=none
BROADCAST=169.254.255.255
IPADDR=169.254.255.20
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=169.254.255.0
ONBOOT=yes
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=no
TYPE=Ethernet

However, I do not use a modem to connect to the internet.

If you are using dhcp try as root dhcpcd eth0 then ping www.google.com -c 5
