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