First off: Ethernet or USB connection?

Secondly: try this:
Code:
$ ping -c 4 linuxquestions.org
$ ping -c 4 64.179.4.149
If the first fails, but the second passes ( 4 replies ) then you need to add you ISP's DNS servers to /etc/resolv.conf

If the cable modem is capable of Ethernet connection - might I reccomend that. A NIC anymore will only cost you about $10 (USD) and will save you a lot of headaches.
