	Have you tried to ping another machine on your local network using the ip 
address? (like "ping" or whatever the ip address of the other 
machine)  I f this works then you can get out past your NIC card onto the 

	Next try pinging something on the internet - like maybe the dns server at 
your isp.  Again be sure to use the ip address,  not a domain name.	My dns

If this works then you may can get past whatever firewall may sit between you 
and the internet.

	Lastly, check your NIC configuration to make sure it knows the ip address of 
the DNS server.  I am not at a Redhat linux box right now so I can't tell you 
exactly where to do this,  but maybe someone else can chime in.

	Good luck!
