Are you setting static IP addresses, or are you getting them from a DHCP server? Could you perhaps provide the output of the following commands?

/sbin/ifconfig

/sbin/route

cat /etc/resolv.conf

This can help determine your connectivity issues.

Have you enabled packet forwarding between the public and private network interfaces? If not, you need to add …

net.ipv4.ip_forward=1

to /etc/sysctl.conf.

Is there a proxy server in use on the network, you may need to set your browser to point at the proxy host to allow you out on the public internet!
