If you can ping on IP, but can't surf, there is a problem with the DNS settings.
What is the output from
Code:

ping 74.125.67.100
ping google.com
cat /etc/resolv.conf

the only thing i can ping is if i get it to ping itself so if i go on my server and ping it it will work but if i ping my router it wont work
