ADSL connects but I cannot go to Internet

I have RH9. I followed the instructions on page 88 of their manual. The DSL line activates correctly (ie the login id and password are accepted). However I cannot browse or ping anything even if I use an IP address. Internally to my router, the ping works correctly with other computers.

My system has a hardcoded IP address (not dyamic) but did not specify DNS or gateways. Could this be an issue?

I used Redhat's GUI network connection program to configure the xDSL.

Any ideas?

"but did not specify DNS"
Look into this part further!
Add you DSL nameservers or any nameservers to /etc/resolve.conf.

DNS entires are needed for name resolution, so it is one side of the problem, as for the conectivity - make sure you are routed to the correct gateway
