I suspect this is the source of your problem - that ip needs to be changed
to a good dns server - very likely you have internet access but no name
resolution.  You could confirm this by pinging a known ip address like say
-  If you can get there, you're in good shape other than
the bogus dns server.

I've been working with Darwin off-list because I had outbound email
problems from this account - if anyone finds this in the future, also
provide the output from the "route" command, which helps to diagnose if
the adapters are coming up in the right order, etc.
