Can you ping an outside address:

ping 209.97.46.5

This is the address for www.usatoday.com.

If you can ping the outside address, but can not ping www.usatoday.com, then
there is something wrong with your name resolution... and
probably /etc/resolv.conf is the problem.

Has this setup ever worked in the past?
What has changed?
Do you have a firewall running on your router?
