belkin router mandrake problems


i've recently made the move over to linux (well half a move at the moment, after getting p*ssed off with virii, spyware, badly thought out design etc.()

however i cant get onto the net though my router at present i have a belkin router and i've attempted to config it using the automatic mandrake internet config utility but to no avail. i'm running mandrake 9.2.

is there a way that i can specify the IP address that mandrake uses to connect to the net?

many thanks in advanced,
