as root:
ip route show (or route -n)
will tell you what your current routing table says.
You may already know that.
[root lanky ~]# ip route show dev eth0  proto kernel  scope link  src via dev eth0 dev eth0  scope link
default via dev eth0

that 'default' line is important.

are you saying that you can ping 192.168.1.X but nothing else?
that would suggest two possibilities to me:
1) you have no default gateway
system-config-network [Applications -> System Settings -> Networking]
double-click on the eth0 entry, and
make sure you default gw is correct.

2) no NAT rules in place between you and the outside world
solution: configure your router.
