Do you have those "numbers" in your /etc/resolv.conf file?

Still sounds like a problem with looking up domain names.

If you do ping yahoo.com does it say unknown host or does it get an ip address.

Hmm, show us your /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/nsswitch.conf files
Can you ping your nameservers?

you could try running tcpdump and see if it is actually trying to contact the nameservers.

Because you can ping the IP but not the name, hence you have a problem with name resolution. Try running dhcpcd and then giving it another whirl.

name resolution is what turns your ip into www.yourdomain.com. it translates the text of yourdomain.com into the address of the computer serving it. It is what makes google.com =xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

how bout setting yor dns search path to your router?
