Run the following command in a terminal window:
Look at the line that has "Link encap:Ethernet". The alphanumeric right before that -- in my case "p5p1" -- is the suffix of the file you want to edit in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. In my case that's /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-p5p1. Open a text editor like "gedit" and open the aforementioned file. Edit the line that says "GATEWAY=" with an ip address at the end by changing it to whatever gateway ip you want to use for the gateway. You might also need to edit /etc/sysconfig/network the same way. Restart networking.
EDIT: I forgot to mention changing your ip is done with the same files. Don't forget you have to either restart networking or reboot for the changes to take effect.
