This looks promising :-)

Try ping

If this also fails, don't read on - wait for help from someone more 
experienced :-)

If this works, then the problem is that you don't have DNS server 
specified. You should put something like this into /etc/resolv.conf:

nameserver xx.xx.xx.xx

xx.xx.xx.xx should be replaced with your ISP's DNS server. If you don't 
have your own domain name, you can use just your ISP's domain name
