Unless you did something extraordinary during the install, you should have all the utilities you need to connect to your modem (at least for wired - wireless might require an additional package or two). What you really need is your router's IP address, and possibly some connection info, if you are not using DHCP, or if the router does not have DNS info (unlikely).
Assuming you are using a wired connection, do you have a CAT-5 ethernet cable going from your PC to the modem? Take care of that first, if not.
Check the following commands (run them as root), show the output of them and we can help you further:
current TCP configuration:
for i in `ls /sys/class/net/|grep -v lo`; do echo -n $i;ethtool $i|grep Link;done
See if you can already get on the net:
host www.google.com nslookup www.google.com
