I think you need to give a bit more information! What response do you get to "yum install rsync"? Will yum do anything, like searching? Have you checked /etc/yum.repos.d to see what the repository settings are?

Actually, I'm surprised it isn't installed already — mine is.

To check dns simply do ping google.com if it resolves to an IP than it is working. You can also ping some other domains. Your question is incomplete and you will not get a good answer unless you give us output form the console.

I'm pretty sure rsync is included with even the minimal CentOS installation.

edit: nevermind, it's not...ignore me.

It would help enormously if you just showed us your terminal session so we can see exactly what's happening.
