browsing problems

i can connect to the internet fine, i am assigned an ip address and can use, without problems anything in the shell (eg, ping, ftp) but as soon as i go into x windows its asthough i am not connected

netscape cant get to any webpages, gFTP cant connect to a site that FTP in shell can etc...

what is wrong? i figured that once i get connected in the shell it should just work when i type in "" in netscape

(i use an adsl usb speedtouch modem, and 'benoit's drivers')

Seems really strange to me. Can you tell me if you can ping from shell? ( Not ip, just the name ).
