I assume your ISP uses DHCP and does not specify DNS servers manually..
--if you provided more of an explanation, exact problem is, maybe someone will have an answer
I don't get it either, since I don't know your exact problem ?

Anyway, this was lagagnon's answer
--in order to renew the dhcp lease, or refresh the complete connection

In your network config I assume you have set DHCP to be on? At any rate I would reboot your Internet modem, check you have a DHCP lease on your router, phone your ISP and make sure DHCP is working...
