pppoe seems to connect but cant resolve hostnames


Hi,
I just installed debian and it seems that I configured pppoe (on an adsl connection) correctly, but it won't let me browse or anything.
When I run ifconfig , the ppp0 looks connected, from time to time receiving some data.
I'm extremly new to linux so I beg to share your knowledge with me!!!
Thanks

I'll try to paste the ifconfig log here later (right now i'm on windows)

Do you have your ISP's nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf ? It should look something like this
Code:
nameserver 195.92.195.94
nameserver 195.92.195.95
If /etc/resolv.conf is empty find the numbers you need by asking Google to show you pages that contain your ISP's name and the word nameserver

The resolv.conf seems to be ok... I compared the IPs from windows with those there and they match.

Here is the ifconfig , in case someone can detect something that might be wrong...:
