Cannot connect to internet
I have installed Mandriva 2006 Free on my Windows XP machine (dual-booting) and everything is fine except the internet. I connect through a D-Link router to a cable connection. It is not wireless. Under Windows, everything is fine, but when I get into Linux, I can't access anything. The connection uses DHCP.
Here are the results of some commands that I ran:

I also checked the contents of resolv.conf. The entire contents are as follows:
This makes sense to me; the router's IP address is 192.168.0.1.
I've tried a lot to get this thing to work, but it ain't happenin. I had the same issue on Debian, too.
Anything you can tell me will be greatly appreciated. If you need more info I will be happy to supply it.
