Connecting to I-net through Linksys router in Linux

I have two computers with Windows on one of them and Linux RH 7.0 on the other. I connected them to this Linksys router BEFSR41 and connection to I-net is working fine on Win machine ( I have PPPoE), but it doesnn't work on Linux. First, the router doesn't recognize Linux machine IP address ( in its client table, though I gave IP address to Linux machine and besides, I pinged the WIN machine IP address ( from Linux machine and it could find it, so the link is up and connection between computers exists. I can access router's setup page from Linux machine, I pinged router's IP address-it worked. The only thing that doesn't work is I-net on Linux machine. I tried to ping router's WAN port from Linux machine-it didn't find it...

Thank you in advance,

I finally got my router to work after having similar problems. What are your network settings for gateways and name servers? Here's the way I have mine set up. My name servers are my ISP's name servers. So that part is set up just like the router isn't even there. My IP address is with a Netmask of and the default gateway is Hopefully this will be of some help to you. That's the way mine works on the exact same setup you have.
