    There are a couple of anomilies I have ran into to try.
    first sometimes the gateway doesn't get written.
    goto /etc/rc.d/
    pico rc.inet1.conf

    #at the bottom there is a Gateway = " "
    if it says
    Gateway = " "
    change it to
    Gateway ="<whatever you gateway is"
    Gateway = "" #keep quotes

    save then reboot.

    Second issue sometimes you have internet and don't know it because you DNS didn't get written

    to check this go to /etc/
    pico resolv.conf #spelling is correct

    This file only needs two things nameserver and the IP

    nameserver # whatever your real dns is. Might need to get from your ISP or look in your router under DNS

    These are things to check good luck
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    type ifconfig after you run thru the dhcp settings in netconfig and post it.

    @adrenianle, at the bootom it says DHCP_HOSTNAME= instead of gateway.

    @genesus took one of the cards out and reconfigured. still no good......
