Are you running 'X', or 'startx'? The usual way to start X Windows
is the startx script. As I understand it, the X windowing system
has network capabilities, and 'X' by itself just starts the server
portion; you also need a client portion to actually get the GUI.
Using 'startx' should work right out of the box; however, if you
haven't already, I would recommend running 'xf86config', which
will set up X Windows for your specific hardware, rather than
using generic options. 'xf86config' might also help fix potential
problems in the X Windows configuration.
Hope this helps,
