Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Try to "ping" or better "traceroute" to some host given by IP, instead by host name. If it works, then your problem is in the name resolution - either you incorrectly set your namerservers, or they are not working correctly. But given the fact, that you have 4 of them, it's improbable all of them to be down. So, I suppose the problem is in the router and "traceroute" will fail after the gateway. Check if "ping" to a remote IP gives "Network unreachable", your router's NAT settings, the cables, the firewall settings (particularly the DNS service port), in this order.
