Help me with Mandrake 9.1 network settings

So I installed Mandrake Linux as a dual boot on my box and everything went swimmingly until I tried to connect to my home network. I can’t even ping my router, much less connect to the internet. Since I’m new to linux I used the drakconnect utility to attempt to set everything up. It recognized my network card, and I clicked the “dhcp” button and followed the instructions, but no connection. I tried assigning an ip address and using the router’s address as the gate, but that didn’t work either.

So linux dopers, can you get me online?
