Give these a try

While I'm not familiar with that particular router, you probably need to go assign the interface an address.

conf t
interface fa0/1
ip address dhcp setroute
no shut

After that, you'll also need to set another interface as your inside interface...

conf t
interface fa0/2
ip address netmask
no shut

The specific syntax may be off since I mostly work with ASAs (different operating system, but similar).

Then you can test by assigning yourself an IP on the same subnet as that inside interface, and point your dns at or something, with default gatway being that inside interface IP.

Good luck!
