DSL can Ping, No Internet Explorer

Just installed PacBell DSL on a WinNT multihomed workstation. From this system I can log on to DSL, ping anywhere on the internet and ping computers on my own INTRAnet.  However, I cannot browse the web using Internet explorer, Netscape, or Opera. All resources are available on my INTRAnet.  I also have a DUN and a 56k modem installed which does work (read browse internet).

I have read other posts that suggest firewall software to be the problem and removing the firewall software seems to be a solution.  I do have Winproxy installed and will probably remove it this evening when I get home to see if this solves the problem.  Has anyone else had this problem and/or have a solution to it?

Regards,

Sounds like you just aren't getting DNS resolution.
What is your DNS server setting? Try setting it to a well known cache server like 198.6.1.2

lrmoore....

I agreee.  But I have already tried forcing valid DNS IPs to the NIC's with no luck.  This cache server you mention, 198.6.1.2, is this a PacBell DNS server or where does it come from?

If you can ping then I doubt the problem is with DNS.  Have you changed the Internet Explorer - Connection -options from "Dial-up" to "Never dial a connection"  and Lan Settings to "automatically detect" ?

You can test the DSL from a command prompt (CMD)
1) ipconfig /all

should list DNS and Gateway server IP addresses

2) ftp ftp1.sierra.com

Should open a connection to Sierra's FTP site 1.

PS.  The firewall should have warned/prevented the pings for DUN and DSL.

can you ping FQDN such as yahoo.com, hotmail.com, etc?  I tend to agree with lrmoore.

PacBell could use some better documentation.  Apparently it was a matter of username and password.  (I could have RTFM better too..)

Thanks to all....
