hmm,
..your DNS-Server settings are correct ?
(/etc/resolv.conf)
if you can ping a IP-Adress but not a domainname it mybe a problem with DNS.

pls check the dns server ip address of ur ISP (from a windows 2k based mechine just connect internet and from command prompt type ipconfig /all. u will get the dns ip address ,other wise call ur isp and ask for dns ip . then in linux add the dns address in /etc/resolv.conf
syntax

vi/etc/resol.conf

nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

:wq

relpce the xxx with ur original dns ip
