IF you can ping and resolve names, then it's a browser setup problem.
Check your proxies.

Would it make sense to simply enter the IP address into the browser, (or
ping by IP) and see if it works, rather than use the diagnostic procedure
you outline above?

If you don't have any domain name servers, it's kind of hard to get an IP
address to enter. I don't know a single IP address for Google, Yahoo, etc.
Besides if you know the IP and it does work, you still have to enter the
DNS info in resolv.conf.
