Sounds like a DNS problem have you tried to use an ip address?
you could be blocking DNS access for users?

should give you google.

I screwed something up trying to fix dns problem.So i reinstalled and picked DNS Server while setting up.But i have the package names for U .It is one or more of these three packages.Probably the one called nameserver.

caching-nameserver 9.0-2 mdk
ypserver-2.8-1 mdk

these were listed when i checked my Installed Software
try a search on the install software page
or look for a package named
DNS server

Hope this is some help I am a noob Also
