Server does not have a DNS entry

I am getting the following error with Netscape:

"Netscape is unable to locate the server:  www.dejanews.com
The server does not have a DNS entry"

This appears to be the only URL that I cannot locate.  I know the URL is valid and it worked until recently.  Does this have anything to do with the fact that I recently installed and uninstalled a different browser (Opera)?

Opera shouldn't affect it in any way. Since that URL does exist it simply means that somewhere along the path to that server you are hitting a roadblock.
Try going to to DOS prompt and running "tracert dejanews.com" and "ping dejanews.com" and then post the results here.

cyberwizz,

here it is:

C:\WINDOWS>tracert dejanews.com
Unable to resolve target system name dejanews.com.

C:\WINDOWS>ping dejanews.com
Bad IP address dejanews.com.

Hmm.... interesting.

What is your IP Address? Is it a virtual IP? How do you connect to the net - modem, T-line, through work? Do you connect through a firewall? Are you running Win95?

Please also run a trace on cnet.com and post the results.

Luke,try re-entering your proxy settings in Netscape and access the site again,or if you
can bypass you proxy server by checking the direct connection to the Internet radio button and vice-versa.The internet sites sometimes can be very busy and netscape just
cannot acess it at that time.Always try later on and reconfigure your proxy settings now and then.
Good Luck

Luke,
one more thought. Run "winipcfg" then then select the adapter you use for the net(probably PPP). Select "More Info.." and then paste the address for your DNS server here.
Also, could you please tell me who your ISP is.
