What distribution are you using ? (I suspect Mandrake, but a confirmation would be nice)
What is your network card ? What model ?

Well if im not mistaken, it sounds like your asking for help in how to browse and download within linux its self. Atleast I think thats what your asking. Thats easy. If you were able to setup X and netconfig then you should be able to surf no problem. Now you said you could ping, Im assuming that you are able to ping websites. SO that would mean that you do have a internet connection working, you just need to use it. Im going to take a wild guess, but I think you may have Redhat, and or Mandrake, just a feeling , but most of them use KDE for the Xwindows. If you look on the taskbar you should see a little thing that looks like a globe, most of the time that will take you to Konqueror, which is a pretty good web browser. As far as downloading files, you just need to click on the link for the download, Almost all browsers that would be with linux have a download manager built in! Good luck, If Im like totally off base please post more info so I can help you!
