Unless you have some new graphical ping utility the terminal is perfectly acceptable. Unknown host usually implies that the hostname could not be resolved and that you should check your DNS settings for accuracy. Try doing an nslookup on the hostname you tried to ping and see what the results are.

You got this IP on what interface? 127.0.0.1 is the loopback address and is always associated with the lo interface. Are you running DHCP on your main ethernet interface?

What's in /etc/resolv.conf and what's the output of netstat -nrt?
