ERROR                         network problem

You tried to access the address http://www.google.ca/, which is currently unavailable. Please make sure that the Web address (URL) is correctly spelled and punctuated, then try reloading the page.
Make sure your Internet connection is active and check whether other applications that rely on the same connection are working.

cheers

Probably a dns problem, try appending opendns ips to your /etc/resolv.conf file:

Code:
nameserver 208.67.220.220
nameserver 208.67.222.222

I find that very unlikely. They may only "support" windows, but the connection protocols are common across the platforms.
