Check /mnt/sda4/etc/resolv.conf -- it should have a nameserver entry the same as
your /etc/resolv.conf file.

E.G. On my creaky laptop I have
cat /etc/resolv.conf

Which works, and
cat /mnt/suse/etc/resolv.conf

Which doesn't work after chroot to /mnt/suse

changing /mnt/suse/etc/resolv.conf to

Means that ping does work
