Perhaps you need to rereport your symptoms. Indeed, report them
at all: you said ping worked; pinging what? Can you ping the
loopback? the router? other local hosts, by number or by name?
8.8.8.8? "The same problem" doesn't cut it. At least you've now
got the external nameservers in your resolv.conf. And does your
router do DNS or not?

Cheers,

Symptoms: Any package that needs access to the network sends an error message indicating that it doesn't have access to the internet. Ping doesn't work for names but does for ip addresses. All ip addresses both local and global.

In short, there doesn't seem to be any access to a name server. My believe that my Actiontec router at 192.168.1.1 also acts as a name server.

Thanks for the help
