You have to give details. Is it DSL or cable? Is it ethernet or USB?

What version of linux are you using? Whats the name of your cable modem?
Does your NIC have the right driver?

Right. Is that the only network card in your computer? If so, then try an ifconfig eth0 <your static IP> gw <your gateway> up and a route add default eth0. Also add your nameservers into /etc/resolv.conf. Then try to ping a website.

Are you saying that you computer is a gateway for your local network? If so you need to read up on IP masquerading. If you're connecting through a hub, what I said should work depending on the hub. Just try what I said and report any errors.
