If you have a DNS problem, and it appears from what you posted you do, edit /etc/resolv.conf as root user. In Ubuntu use the 'sudo gedit /etc/resolv.conf' file and add the lines, so it looks like this:

Quote:
cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8)
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN
nameserver 208.67.222.222
nameserver 208.67.220.220
You can use the nameservers I am showing, they are there for anyone to use.

As an alternative, you can get the nameserver IP addresses form your service provider, and use them instead. Either should work.

If it does not, you will have to supply more information on your internet connection, your ISP, and hardware information.

You should restart your system after the edit.

Code:
sudo gedit /etc/resolv.conf
getting sudo gedit command not found

so using vi resolv.conf

changed to

nameserver 208.67.222.222
nameserver 208.67.220.220

What is happening is your router is sending back its nameserver config and overwritting your updated config. That is OK, now that I know you have a router, you need to update the nameserver entires in your router. 192.168.1.1 should be your gateway address. If you know how to connect to your router, change the nameserver entries there. If you do not know how to do that, post the make and model. Most of them have manuals you can find on manufacturers web sites.
