I guess part of the problem is that i also use a NETGEAR wireless router (Model WGR614)... I use wireless to connect to my laptop that has windows xp, this is running just fine.
  My D Link modem connects to this router and this router is connected to my CPU (Desktop, which has Ubuntu/Linux). How to i set-up my router in linux then?... 
  Modem is set-up to gain IP adress automatically (DHCP)...
  Pls advise

How are you setting the IP address on your desktop ? is it getting it via
DHCP from the DLink router ?

If it isn't .. try to get it via DHCP that'll be the easiest way to get
everything working.

or if you are you are manually configuring the ethernet device. You have to
set the default route to and you have to set your DNS server to
either (if the device has a DNS forwarder) or to a valid DNS
