well, after a lot of googling, I found that the DNS entry that should have been made be the network-manager wasn't made. so, I had to manually do that by editing the /etc/resolv.conf file and restarted the network.

# Generated by NetworkManager

# No nameservers found; try putting DNS servers into your
# ifcfg files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts like so:
This solved the problem.
