What kind of internet connection do you have? eg cable, DSL
Do you have a router?

Is your connection working correctly with other systems?

Regardless of whether there is a router, is the connection to the computer set up for a fixed (static) IP address or for DHCP (dynamic IP)

Please provide as much detail as possible about the configuration.

Also, open a terminal, and enter:
ping www.google.com

If there is no response, then try (numeric IP for Google):
ping 74.125.19.99
If this version works, then you simply need to enter you DNS host information into the network configuration.

We can only help you if you answer all of our questions....

Please do the tests that I requested.

Also, since you have a router, try pinging it:
ping 192.168.1.1

Only configuring the machine won't land you up on what is called "the internet". After configuring your ,machine try and connect the net using "kinternet" or "network manager". It would then be possible to access the net.
