Maybe you have your system in paranoid mode or behind a firewall

It's probably a dns problem

I can test it later, I know someone with earthlink. For now just edit /etc/resolv.conf and remove everything from it.

this will do the trick..

echo > /etc/resolv.conf
then connect and see if nameservers get added to the file and that it works.

If it still does not work then maybe it's your firewall settings. Modify your firewall or try it momentarily with no firewall.

Sounds like your DNS system isn't working. You'll probably want to find out the IP address of the nameservers Earthlink wants you to use and add them like so:

nameserver nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn
nameserver mmm.mmm.mmm.mmm

in /etc/resolv.conf where nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn and mmm.mmm.mmm.mmm are the IP addresses of the nameservers.
