Hi stetthat, Welcome to LQ. We'll need a bit more information to help you. What kind of connection are you attempting to make, e.g. dial up modem, dsl modem, wifi, etc.

Good luck. ;-)

And if you can output from ifconfig -a and cat /etc/resolv.conf as well. Cannot find server can also mean you have DNS issues.
