Can only access net with ping

I have installed Lynx and am getting an error about being unable to
connect to host. From the console I can ping internet IP's such as my
ISP's DNS, but pinging www.yahoo.com gives an unknown host error.
I know this is some sort of configuration error on my part, but I can't
seem to figure out where. I've compared files between my RH host and
LFS but that's didn't help.
My setup is ADSL -> NAT router -> HUB -> my computer.
The router's IP is 192.168.1.1, and my computer is 192.168.1.71.
My RH host accesses the net perfectly. Any ideas?
Here is my $LFS/etc/hosts file:
# Begin /etc/hosts (network card version)
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.1.71 snoopy.guardiansofthegrail.org snoopy
# End /etc/hosts (network card version)
And here is etc/sysconfig/network:
What am I missing?
By the way, guardiansofthegrail.org is just an old domain I still own
and was using to experiment with getting a mail server running on my
router/firewall. Perhaps that's causing some sort of problem, though as
I said my RH 8.0 host works fine.
The router/firewall is a Linux box running ClarkConnect:
This is an incredible distro I would highly reccommend to anyone.
