Angry can't wget!!


Greetings all,
the problem that is haunting me is that i can't seem to wget on my my new debian distro.
whenever i issue somerthing like:

wget -r http://www.unicode.org

on the terminal, nothing can be downloaded;the following error message crops up:

--15:09:06-- http://www.unicode.org/
=> `index.html'
Resolving www.unicode.org... failed: Host not found.

how can i solve this problem?as u know , 'wget' is SUCH an useful tool
