Hi Gordon - yes it all points to the fact that your DNS isn't configured correctly. Your network adaptor has been set to look at the router (192.168.1.1) for any DNS info but for some reason it hasn't got it - or the provider hasn't given it to it. So far you have only pinged Private, internal IP addresses and they all work - and the external URLs all fail. Now try pinging something like diptera.info using it's IP address (22.214.171.124) and see if you get a reply - if you do then you definitely have internet and no DNS.
The good news is that you just have to find the IP addresses of your internet provider by Googling (like "<insert providers name here> dns server address" and then put them into the network adaptor's settings/properties (replacing the 192.168.1.1 address in the DNS server list). :)
