I'm guessing more than likely your DNS server is external to
your internal LAN and you don't have an internal DNS to
manage RFC1918 IPs. If this is the case, this is why pings will
*seem* to fail. They are trying to look up your internal addresses
(which will fail with an internet connection up fairly quickly)
but hang because there is no connection via your ISP to a
DNS server to respond "no, there is no PTR for that A".
Get yourself an internal DNS and you should be ok
