?unresolved host?

I can ping any IP  ie Yahoo.com's IP but I can not ping names ie. yahoo.com. IE will not find any address at all. I can't even goto the router using  IE but can ping it or any computer on the router.

G'day, mrdenny
What do you have as your nameserver on your workstation? Can you post results of C:\>ipconfig /all
What OS do you have on your workstation?
When you say you can't go to the router, what kind of router is it?

Cheers!

Try removing the dns server 192.168.8.1, and keep the bellsouth server only.
If you are getting them from dhcp, then try changing the settings on the router.
What kind of router do you have that is assigning the DHCP addresses?

In the router get rid of the 192.168.8.1 on the DNS settings  205.152.104.252 is a valid DNS address 192.168.8.1 is a private IP and unable to be routed on the internet. Bell south should have provided 2 DNS address 205.152.104.252 and maybe something like 205.152.105.252 or something like it. You only need 1 DNS address the 2nd adddress is just for backup in case the primary fails.

GrindCrusher, welcome to the team! It's always nice to have fresh viewpoints and experience base in this Topic Area.

While what you said is true, depending on the router that is being used, some (i.e. LinkSys and D-Link for sure, even ICS) act as a DNS proxy for the internal clients and gives its own address to the clients via dhcp by default. That's why I asked the question "what kind of router is it?"

The router is a Comp USA. and it assigns the ips
 it configured as follows

WAN Subnet Mask 255.255.255.255
WAN Gateway 68.159.206.44
WAN DNS 205.152.104.252 , 205.152.37.254
LAN MAC Address 00-90-47-00-F9-89
LAN IP Address 192.168.8.1
DHCP Server 192.168.8.17 - 128


It configured the computer that is working fine with
192.168.8.18 and the one which is not working with
192.168.8.17
I have no control over the 192.168.8.1 THAT I know of.

Thanks for working this with me.
also fyi the ipconfig /all is the same for the cpu that is working.
I am so stumped on this.

the op sys for the failing cpu is 98 se the working one has ME. the ipconfig /all has the same output except the ip's are .....192.168.8.18 and 17 (assigned by the router)
The only other time I have seen anything like this it was the result of uninstalling Zone Alarm which I did do. I have reinstalled it (no help) opened it up and uninstalled it again. no help.
