It looks like your name servers are down
Code:
home:~# cp /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf_bak
home:~# echo nameserver 24.93.41.125 > /etc/resolv.conf
home:~# echo nameserver 24.93.41.126 >> /etc/resolv.conf
home:~# ping google.com
ping: unknown host google.com
Try using open DNS servers such as 4.2.2.2 and 4.2.2.1 or contact your ISP to supply you with their nameservers.
And BTW 10.0.0.0/8 is a private netblock. So it only works on your local network, but not on the internet.
Try pinging 4.2.2.2 if you get a reply you're OK to go, if not then your box isn't on the internet
