I would recommmend two files which are to be examined

/etc/hosts would be one of them. On the line        localhost localhost.

you should append /computername.domainname/ (let's say and 
/computername. /. /Computername/ is either given to you by your ISP, or 
you can choose one.

In my case, the line looks like        localhost localhost. Yoggy.

Another file you should examine is /etc/resolv.conf, where you should have

nameserver x.x.x.x

where x.x.x.x stands for the DNS server IP address of your ISP provider.

Which error messages do you get? Can you be more specific?

Best regards,
