Network card problems

I just got rid of dhcp, and have assigned all computers on the network,
including the linux box, ip addresses.  I reran netconfig and gave it the
new ip address, netmask, and gateway.  Now when I type ifconfig I see the
the net address is, that's what I assigned it.  Only problem
is I still have no network support.  I can't ping the box, and I can't
connect to my router using lynx.  Could there be some configuration on the
card that is messed up? Someone suggested that I run isapnp, but the card
seems to be detected fine.
Explorer has caused a general protection fault in module kernel32.dll. I'm
sick of Winblows!
