teach me how to get online

i've just installed fedora core 3 and trying to get online through D-Link DSL-500G combo (modem and router) and Netgear FS605 v2 switch connected to ADSL.(everything works fine in windows xp)

i have two PC here which connected using both the device mentioned above. both of us got the internet connections and can browse the net in windows xp.

after installing FC3 i go to Network section of the Linux to set my eth0 and the NIC detected correctly.

i configure it as follows
IP Address:
Subnet mask :
Default Gateway :

all the informations are the same in windows xp

then i active the eth0 but when i opens my browser (firefox and konqueror) it cant go into any site at all.

i tried ping and is another computer in the network) i got respond.

how do i get online, did i configure the things wrongly?

Guide me Thank You!

Can you get anything by IP address?

If so then you just need to add your ISPs dns servers to /etc/resolv.conf - ie:
nameserver ip.of.primary.dns
nameserver ip.of.second.dns

You might need to install and configure pppoe. The company I work for has ADSL and needed to do this, I think...
