 can ping okay but HTTP and FTP are non functional.

If you can ping, it's working.  If you have no active network connection at
all, you won't be able to ping anything other than yourself (localhost,, etc)

Are you pinging a numeric address but attempting to use http and ftp to a
domain name?  If so, you have a problem with your dns settings.

if pinging with a name and http/ftp with a name, then it _could_ be your ISP requires you to use their proxy, but does not transparently re-route your packets. :)

If you can ping some places but not others, then you have a routing problem.

If you can ping your internal network but nothing "outside", then you have a
gateway problem (which is also a routing problem).
