I think you must be using firefox to route through your proxy.....
Okay here is the deal....
Try the following things on your linux box and post here:
if this ping works ... it means your comp does not have dns resolution...
Login as root using
Then add/edit the lines
The ip's i have given are that of opendns which works well for me... You can also use primary or secondary dns given by your isp.
Then try pinging google, otherwise post here and i will help
