Where did you (try to) put these lines? In /etc/hosts that would be wrong.
You definitely need the loopback interface lines (IP addresses starting
with 127). We'll talk about the 192 addresses later, but first lets
modify /etc/hosts. You need root privilege to modify that file. Therefore
use the command
gksu mousepad /etc/hosts
in a terminal to edit the file. Then change the file so it gets this
127.0.1.1 daan-laptop.werkgroep daan-laptop
You may keep the IPV6 lines which you had in the original file but they
are not vital. However DO remove the lines with 192.168.2.100 and
192.168.2.1 if they exist. Then save the file.

You can restart the network manager applet with the command
in a terminal and try if you can browse the internet already.
If that doesn't work, use the manual configuration of the network manager.
Select the wired connection and click on the properties button. Uncheck
the "Enable roaming mode" option and select "static IP address" for the
configuration. Enter the IP address 192.168.2.100 and the gateway address
192.168.2.1 (the subnet mask will be added automatically). Now click OK.
Now select the DNS tab. You need at least one DNS server. Click tha "+
Add" button and type the address 192.168.2.1 because I suppose you are
using a router which is your DNS server as well. If you have some other
configuration you would use the address of you ISPs DNS server. Finally
close the configuration window and in a terminal enter this command:
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
Now it should really be possible to browse the internet.

That is totally wrong. <http://127.0.0.1> has nothing to do with the hosts
