default gateway is wrong. Are you behind a router or directly connected to the modem?

you're going to have to look at the settings in your router and verify that you have a valid dns address being used. If you aren't sure then you can try a public dns address and if it works then you know that's the problem. The following lists some public DNS addresses you can try.
