___OK, a difficult one (I could not solve it):

ping works (I connect using DUN with a modem) on common servers (example:
computer can not connect to the site I can ping using Internet Explorer (example:
DNS-Service runs & all other necessary services run & Windows is happy with the modem (Smart 56k voice modem as AMR)

___Problem History: The user had been using AOL6 to connect to the Internet but uninstalled it and installed AOL9 which does not work. Since then no internet connection has been obtained except for my ping-only-copnnection through an independent local provider.

I have unistalled and reinstalled AOL9 to no avail. AOL9 cannot use the existing comnnection nor can it build up a connection itself (neither auitomagically not by manual setup)

Hope you can help me, because I have seen this problem before and I could only solve it by reinstalling windows from scratch, which I will do if there is not other chance. Where can I download Internet Explorer (German) full install package to overwrite the internet explorer installation AOL9 did provide?
