ipgraffiti,

Do you get any error messages from your attempts to emerge?
What about links2?

Are you pinging by IP address or the website name? If the former, then try instead doing "ping www.yahoo.com"

And if that fails then there's something wrong with DNS and you /etc/resolv.conf would be the most likely culprit (that file needs to have your nameservers listed in it).
