FC3 Internet connectivity issue

I recently upgraded to FC3 from FC2 and now I'm having rather odd internet connectivity issues. When I start up mozilla or firefox, it will just hang on "Connecting to <google's website address>", and never load the page, and does this for many other addresses, but not all. For example, I can connect to redhat's website and other seemingly random pages in my bookmarks (though they load noticably slower than usual). The really odd thing is that I can use the traceroute utility to trace to google. So, I'm a bit unsure of the nature of this problem. I connect via ethernet cable to a DSL modem, and my connection uses DHCP. During bootup, it shows the "eth0.................[OK]" message, and time synchonization seems to occur normally. If anyone can help me out with this, please let me know what further information I can post to help you understand.

Also, my internet connection works fine in windows XP.

Thanks in advance.

Nevermind. Problem seems to have been solved by correcting the DNS server address.
