How did you setup your network connection? I notice you are using DSL, do you have a router or firewall that connects between the modem and your PC? If so, do you have the gateway and everything configured properly?

What does it say in /etc/resolv.conf?
It should say something like
Code:
nameserver aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd
nameserver eee.fff.jjj.kkk
where aaa, bbb and so on should be numbers, the numerical address of your ISP's nameserver.
If you don't know the numbers, ask Google to show you pages that contain the word nameserver and your ISP's name
