help, help, please

totally new to linux etc... have just installed mandrake. i connect to the internet via an adsl router/'modem which has several windows machines and now a linux machine connecting through it...

when i load konqueror and try and view a web page i get the following message:

An error occured while loading

Could not connect to host

However if i go to the command line and type ping i get a reply.... also if i type the actual google ip address into konqueror the page loads..

any help much appreciated...
