Unhappy mandrake 10 and routers?

i recently installed mandrake 10.0 offical on a computer as a server but when i plug it into my d-link router it lets me goto the router configuration page but all i can do is view the site not restart the router or anything like that. and it can't acess the internet in any way (no webpages other then router configurations). also too even though it shows data speeds it says the cable is unpluged

then i tried it with my net gear wireless router i try to acess the configuration and i just get a white screen (yet it has the right title on the webpage) yet now i can acess the internet. now i even close the router configration page and from anther computer on the router i try to configure it (sence i can't on the server) but it says device is using it. it says its pluged and shows the right data speeds.

Also to i just try pluging it into the switch and see if without a router it will get anything but it doesn't so it looks like somthing is up with the internet, i have the security level set to higher, could that be the prob? or is there somthing i forgot to configure?

i'm lost on wat to do, did they ever program mandrake to work behind a router?

(mind you all conections were hardwired not wireless)

thanks for your guy's help

OK, question 1. is there 1 ethernet card in your machine or 2. i presume 2. so then you would like your linux box to act as a proxy/firewall/router. OK your in luck. this site hosts a lot of howto's and one of them is about your question.

there it is.
