setting up wireless adapter

I am trying to setup my wireless usb adapter on my mint desktop. here is my interfaces file:
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static
        wpa-essid ssid
        wpa-psk psk
I can ping I can't go to though.
I did setup the static connection on my router.

What's in /etc/resolv.conf? I'm guessing nothing.

I don't know mint, but in lots of distros, using a static IP address doesn't allow you to use peerdns and requires that you set you nameservers manually.
