Angry Unable to find server


Please help, i recently changed my broadband provider and since then i havent been able to connect to the internet. I have configured all the settings on my laptop,(ive got puppy linux 4 on it). All the settings say i have a valid connection to the wireless connection and that its recognised the new provider but when i try to access the internet i get the page that says UNABLE TO CONNECT TO SERVER and it also says that i need to check my network connections etc etc. Ive done all that and it appears that i have everything in the right place. SO WHY wont it connect. Someone please help its driving me mental. lynny68

Did you reconfigure your wireless router for your new ISP? Does your wireless router include tools with which you can ping or traceroute any remote host? If you 'dig any google.com' and 'tcptraceroute www.google.com' what gets returned?
