Wine with networking?

I use Wine for 2 things, Google Talk and Gunz Online, both require networking, both fail to go any farther than where they need to communicate with the WWW... so what must I do to enable the internet on Wine?

I know its possible people play WoW on linux

I'm not sure where wine is as far as Windows networking goes, but I do know that Cedega will run a lot of networked games (WoW, Half-Life, Battlefield, etc). They branced off from wine a few years ago due to licensing conflicts.

Oh I guess firewall would probably block it, yeah, I'll look into that.
