Able to connect, but cannot ping or browse


I have configured my internet using RP-PPPoE on Ubuntu 7.04. The thing is, I am able to connect, but I am unable to browse or ping. My DNS server is allright in resolv.conf.

Help will be much appreciated...

Thanks in advance...

Do you have firewall set up? You may need to reconfigure it.

Try pinging (Google)

If you cannot ping **anything**, then what evidence do you have that there is a connection?
