I connect to internet from ISP via pppd.
From few days ago, I cannot ping any URL.
I have the error unknown host.
But if I use the IP, all works.
The nslookup command works fine too. it finds all the URL's that I submit it.
My resolv.conf file is good.

Example:
ping richese.arrakis.es
richese.arrakis.es Unknown host

nslookup richese.arrakis.es
Adress: 195.5.65.130

ping 195.5.65.130
all works fine

What is the problem ?
