Once you can ping the router, you need to make sure the 'default gateway' points to the router.
In RH, as root, run 'netconf'. This program just configures the networking portion that linuxconf provides. Then go to the "Routing and Gateways" section, then the "defaults". This is where the default gateway setting is kept - just type in your router's IP address. you may need to reboot to get the setting to be properly recognized.
