I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you're already connected to and configured to use the local lan (and it can reach the Internet), there are two more tasks required to access the Internet.

You need to configure your system with a default route. And you need to set up dns. Your local network administrator can tell you what IP to use for the default route and can tell you what you should put in the DNS.

All of this can be set up with linuxconf in the Networking section.
