Work this lab on a router that has some kind of connectivity to the Internet. Make sure it can ping a public IP address, like 126.96.36.199, which is a Google DNS server. Configure this as a name server:
ip name-server 188.8.131.52
Then try to resolve public website names, for example, by pinging www.cisco.com.
