normally, this is a DNS issue.

Try the command traceroute -n www.yahoo.com

the output should look similar to this:
CODE
[jrh@localhost jrh]# traceroute -n www.yahoo.com
traceroute: Warning: www.yahoo.com has multiple addresses; using 216.109.118.68
traceroute to www.yahoo.akadns.net (216.109.118.68), 30 hops max, 38 byte packets

If that gives you errors, try the command traceroute -n 216.109.118.68.

If the output works, the problem is that you can't do name lookups. Verify that you have a file called:

/etc/reslov.conf

It should have the following in it (assuming your linsys router has DNS extensions turned on ...):
CODE
search localdomain
nameserver 192.168.1.1


If you have another DNS server on your domain, you could substitute it's ip address for 192.168.1.1...
