You say you can ping your ISP but can you ping anything else out of
there net? Can you surf there sites? I assume you get your IP with
DHCP? What IP, DNS, Netmask and Gateway do you get in that case? And
are they right? /etc/resolv.conf is updated by DHCP if you using it so
it will be overwritten every time your IP is updated.
