Gr8, you can ping ip addresses but can you ping names
ie www.google.com, www.yahoo.com. I suspect you have not
set up /etc/resolv.conf. If I have guessed incorrectly,
you may need to turn of ecn:

echo "0" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_ecn

or edit /etc/sysctl.conf and add:

net.ipv4.tcp_ecn = 0

then reboot for joy...

Take heart amid the deepening gloom that your dog is finally getting
