    You say that you are not getting the internet.

    What exactly is happening?

    It sounds like you have a connection as it is responding to pings but without information about exactly what is or what is not happening it is very hard to help you.

    Have you checked the contents of /etc/resolv.conf and ensured you have entered valid dns servers?

    That would have the effect of stopping you accessing any servers on your connection unless you used thier ip address instead of the hostname. It would give you a different error to not having any connection at all, however you have not given any details of the error you are getting so this is a stab in the dark.
