I'm a newbie and Ican't get internet connection with Mandrake 9.0 thru my router

I have access to the internet thru a router but I can't set up my internet connection. Does anyone know if I should set my DNS to my router or my ISP? If someone thinks the problem could be somewhere else, please tell.

The DNS would have to come from your ISP unless your router serves as a DNS server.
Also if you can provide more information, it might help us determine what else could be the problem, for example what have you tried so far ??

can you ping

can you ping the router (ie.

so the issue may be the dns entry.
is you have linksys router befsr41 look in the setup page find the dns entry
add that entry in you network config as dns.
and bingo.
