Just recently I've been able to connect to my wireless network, but I can't actually access any websites. I can access my routers administration page entering the numeric IP. I also discovered I can ping some numeric IPs (126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 for example, but not www.google.com).
I'm on 12.04. I don't believe it's just my home network, as I can get on-line at work either. Though there I first have to log-in through a webpage, which I can't access, so it's a little hard to tell where the issue starts there.
I'm suspecting something DNS related since numeric IPs work, but have no clue where to go from here.
Edit: responding to comments
I can use the stack exchange IP
Looking at those two files it appears trying to use my computer at work messed up my DNS
