i'm using Windows 2000 SP4, i have this problem on browsing the internet using internet explorer 6:

i cannot open any website getting only 'the page cannot be displayed' page. i can ping any IP address on the internet but would get an 'unknown host' error when i ping using the domain name not the IP address.

i know this is a DNS problem, since i can ping IP addresses but not the domain name. i've tried every solution i knew but still no success.


thank you very much.
