error 105 (net::err_name_not_resolved): The server could not be found.

I am trying to understand and debug the above error. I am able to connect to wireless from my ubuntu, but not able to browse. I am using chrome. It works on windows though. What am I doing wrong?

Within chrome? You tried another browser? –  Bobby Feb 12 '10 at 23:28
tried FF now, it simply says server not found. But my wireless is connected, it says active –  user28084 Feb 12 '10 at 23:29
Seems like DNS resolution is failing. –  Sathya Feb 13 '10 at 0:49
