Internet Problems? Network unreachable

Hi all,

I'm just installed Fedora Core 2 on a machine and I am having all kinds of trouble connecting it to the internet.

First off, my cable modem comes into a Linux mini-ITX box (running Fedora Core 1 and configured as a Router/Firewall for now). Then both of my computers are connected via a hub to that machine.

When I run Windows on the machine with Fedora installed, all is well. My laptop, which also runs Windows works great as far as accessing the internet goes. But the new Fedora install can't connect.

I can "ping -b" and get responses (that IP being the address of the Router), but when I ping anything else it returns a "Network is Unreachable error"

I tried to do a "nslookup" and it did nothing, so I think my problems are with DNS, but using the GUI Network Configuration Utility, I think all the settings are right, those being that the Primary DNS and DNS Search paths are The IPs are assigned via DHCP from the Router, and that seems to be working alright.

The only other piece of information I know to offer is that when I ran "/sbin/route -rn", it showed the Gateway as, and looking at what others have written on these forums hasn't yielded a good solution to be able to solve that.

Any help is appreciated, and please know that I am still rather new to Linux, so detailed instructions if any will be most helpful.
