Unhappy Problem: Internet connection setup with RHEL 5

Hi to all friends, I'm facing a problem while I'm trying to setup my wireless internet connection with RHEL 5. I'm using wireless broad brand connection and with NETGEAR WGR614v9 wireless router, I've connected with my 2PCs and its working good on Windows xp.Using the DHCP the IP address are supplying from the service provider.When I'm trying to connect with RHEL 5 or Linux, it showing no networking connection.
If anyone tell me the possible cause for this problem and the possible way to overcome from the problem I'll rally be Thankful to you.

Thanks & Regards

With most ISPs the service provider provides one external IP for the modem and then your router assigns local (lan) ips to each of the computers connected to it. Typically LAN IPs are of the format.
