I suppose you've the following config :

Cable-Modem ------ Dlink Router ------ PC

So your Dlink router has built-in dhcp server can can give you all the network informations you need (IP Address, Default gw, DNS ).
Can you just ping the dlink router ? Which address did you received ?
Don't forget that you don't have to configure an 'Internet Connection' on your CentOS box, because it's pure networking : your Dlink router will just NAT your outgoing packets ....
