jimthing2001, more infomation is needed. Is the internet being shared through a gateway? Is you PC directly connecting to the internet? What kind of modem do you have? Is there UNIX support for it?
By the way, unless your running a DNS server, your nameserver in /etc/resolve.conf should be pointing to an external address.
This is mine:
root@zion:~# cat /etc/resolv.conf
