Going to the Internet by a gateway

Hello everybody

when i am at home, my internet works Ok (Web browser doesn't give me any problems)

On my work , there is a server running Windows Nt 4.0 and a router with a gateway.

I want to make the changes i make on my computer on Windows (writing my machine Ip, sub-net mask and gateway ) in order to go to the Internet but on Linux.

Where and how can i do it?

i checked on my distro but didn't see any place where to.

Can anybody helps me?

Thanks in advance

If you are using Fedora Core 3 as your profile says, do the following:
1. Open a terminal Window
2. Type
That should bring you a menu similar to what you see in Windows. Simply highlight your card and click "Edit".
At the middle of the window there will be a area called "Statically Set IP address" check that box and simply input your information as you would on the Windows Machine.

Next, click "Ok" on that window and click "File...Save" on the main window.

That should do it.

Have Fun!
