Default Problem in connecting internet from console

when i ping to which is the DNS it responds perfectly but when i ping to any other host for e.g ping it says unknown host. My ip is on a LAN what solution can anyone advise. The Konqueror i.e the Browser runs perfectly when i configure its proxy accordingly.The /etc/resolv.conf shows

"search workgroup

when i run iptables -L it shows

"Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination"

i have used static ip setting in the netconfig and the DHCP is not supported on the can we run internet using the console with static ip settings? The /etc/host.conf shows

"order hosts, bind
multi off"

and the /etc/hosts.allow shows

# hosts.allow This file describes the names of the hosts which are
# allowed to use the local INET services, as decided by
# the '/usr/sbin/tcpd' server.
# Version: @(#)/etc/hosts.allow 1.00 05/28/93
# Author: Fred N. van Kempen, <

# End of hosts.allow."

waiting for ur response.
