Sounds like you need to add your namesevers in /etc/resolv.conf

Your ISP should have provided you the ip addresses for them.

Sorry, that was probably one of my least helpful posts ever. I don't know what I was thinking...

You need to add the following lines into the file /etc/resolv.conf:
nameserver 10.0.0.1
nameserver 10.0.0.2

Of course switch the ip addresses with those given to you by your ISP. If the file does not exist you can just create it... the resolv has NO e at the end... don't ask me why it is just the way it is. You can find the nameservers on a windows machine if you don't have them... or just call the tech support and ask for them. They should have them.

The file is in /etc

You can edit it with any text editor... you change the 10.0.0.1 part for the ip. 205.152.144.235 or whatever your isp gave you. Most isps will provide two... you put one on each line.

I am no windows expert. But there are two ways.

When you are connected you should have two little computer screens on the bar near the time. Click on them. You should see a screen with the computers IP address (it might be on the tab behind the first one) and a button that says details... click on details and copy the two addresses under DNS.

If that doesn't work or you can't seem to find it. Open a command prompt.
To do that, click on start, then click on run. Type CMD and hit enter. When you are at the prompt type `nslookup` without the `s. You will be given the ip of your primary domain name server. This method only gives you one ip -- which is all you need for the most part, the second is backup.

If you can only get one IP just put one line in /etc/resolv.conf
