My dial-up internet connection recently quit working.

My dial-up connection will connect to the internet but IE 6 cannot surf the net. If I plug in to a network then IE 6 works. My OS is WinXP Pro. I created another dial-up connection but it does not work either. Ran WinSockFix, that didn't help. The dial-up adapter gets an IP address. Am stumped, need ideas!

Hi sahinman,

Test and see if it is a DNS problem.

Connect to you dial up connection, then do the following

Start > run > cmd > ok
nslookup
server 203.12.160.35
cisco.com

it should return something like

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    cisco.com
Address:  198.133.219.25

If it DOES, then this is a simple DNS problem.  If it DOESNT, then I would be calling the ISP and asking them what is going on

Hope that helps,
