When ping by name does not work, it is a DNS problem. Most likely.
Ignore ping for now. Concentrate on DNS.
Verify that /etc/resolv.conf contains the appopriate values.
Then use the host command to resolve hostnames. For example:
[dan@ngaio:~] $ host ngaio
ngaio.unixathome.org has address 192.168.0.67
