Can you ping, either another machine on your LAN or some outside box? 
If not by machine name, try this:


It's a server at mit.edu that I know responds.  (I just tried it to make 
sure it's not changed.)  If that works, it's a DNS issue, although how 
dig and nslookup work if your DNS is hinky is a good question.  If that 
works, try this:

wget http://www.zeff.us

If you end up with my index.html, Firefox is part of the problem.
