router issue

I have a redhatserver connected to a Alcatel SpeedTouch 510v4 multi-user ADSL gateway.
I have already my nic configurated with proper private ip of my network (has all my computers, since i don't use a dhcp sercer) and a proper ip for the router, and as so a proper default gateway for all my pc's on my network. i can ping it, i can use it to go on the internet with all my windows computer, why can't i do the some with my linux computer? It's always sayng network not found!!!

thanks in advance,

Can you ping your router from your Linux box? If so, you probably have a dns problem. Go to /etc/resolv.conf you should find something like this -

# search athlon.xp.carl
search athlon.xp.carl

# ppp temp entry

If you have'nt got any name servers specified, put your dns servers ip addresses in using this format.

thanks for u're anwser, already trick it. it was all abaut the default gateway. i've changed the ip but didn't restart the service.
besides, there's no need for the resolv.conf comfig, since my router then takes care of everything, outside my network.
