That tells you that the browser does not know how to resolve the domain name www.google.co.uk.

If you're connected to the internet you should be able to go to http://66.102.11.99

Edit your /etc/resolv.conf and use an appropriate nameserver. After this check if you can do a

$ nslookup www.google.co.uk

modem

when I type that IP, konqueror says: 'could not connect to host', I don't understand, how I should change resolv.conf? In resolv.conf I've only some data like this:
search for hinet.hr
servername 192.168.25.25
...
can you please explain with more details if is possible.
