I don't know how to reconcile these two statements....
what is your internet connection, and is the basic connection working?
Open a terminal and enter: "ping 188.8.131.52" (no quotes). If you get a reply, then try "ping www.google.com". If the numeric ip works, but the URL does not, then you do not have dhcp setup correctly.
If your connection is not working, then we need to know what kind of connection you have---eg DSL, Cable modem, dialup. Do you have a router? ...etc. Give as much detail as possible.
