I continued this thread because my problem starts off the same. I am using a static IP address. When I open a web browser i get an error saying the www.whatever.com sould not be resolved.
I think it may be because I have to enter in the DNS Server address to charter like I did in Windows, But I cant figure out how.
I tried doing pppoeconf and entering them in there but it didn't work, and am I right in the assumption that pppoe is for DSL?
I have Broadband through charter and I am using a linksys wrt54gv4 router. Also my modem is a Motorola 585120 Surfboard. I can provide more info if needed thanks.

I figured it out. It seems that when I ran netconfig I accidentally selected NO when it asked if I was going to be using a nameserver.
I did not need to enter the address of the nameserver (xx.xx.xx.xx), It just worked.
