    Can't get `ping' to work

    I can't seem to get ping to work on my home computer. I actually have two separate installations of Ubuntu 9.10. One is at home, sharing space with Windows Vista (dual-boot) on a Dell Inspiron 1525. The other is at work, using Sun VirtualBox on a Windows XP host. ping works quite well at work, through VirtualBox. For example,
    Code:
    ping linuxcommand.org
    always gets 0% packet loss. However, when I do the same thing at home, I always get 100% packet loss.

    Any ideas?

    Is internet ping the only thing that doesn't work? (Can machine ping other local machines - or browse internet?)
