problem with network in command line


I have set up internet connection in linux

I m able to browse the net using mozilla after changing proxy server settings.However I can't

use command line tools like wget n ping in the terminal.I tried setting the environment

variable http_proxy to "myserverort" But it didn't work .Any ideas how to access the network

I m able 2 access the intranet stuff frm the terminal,I mean frm th command line

wht might be the reason ????
