Welcome to LQ.

What method of connection are you using? LAN, Modem, router or other.

You should just need to set your linux box up with an ip address on the same range as your routers ip address then set the default gateway to be the ip address of the router.

I should have asked you what distro you are running. Try either of these as root:
netconfig
or
netconf
