The IP address looks like what you would get from a typical home
router, so that's probably OK.  A quick test for DNS would be the
'dig' command.  If it quickly returns a screenfull of  root
nameservers and addresses, then DNS is not the problem.    If it
doesn't, then check what you have in your /etc/resolv.conf file.
