There have been quite a few changes since June; you might want to
try building a fresh copy of Wine from CVS.  I have instructions
on how at http://kegel.com/wine/qa
You might also post the log that Wine writes to stdout so we can see if
it's complaining about anything.
Finally, do applications like  FTP work?  I just downloaded and installed
Bulletproof FTP on Wine, and it was able to look up hostnames just fine.
(I would try dnslookup but I don't have a copy handy.)
