    No.  The server not found is caused by reverting hostname to IP.
    I use netscape and firefox as a control test, and the results are the same.
    I am unable to use ""  to get IP, and the result is "server not found"

    I use to access yahoo directly, and the page appears.

    So,  my conclusion is that something make Internet Browers or other progams
    connecting to internet fail to get information from DNS.
    Even I change network card, the result is the same.  
    Is Window ME missing something or wrong configuration ??

    Oooh!  The cause is made by window installer.
    So many drivers in network properties.
    Only Delete all unused NC drivers, and reboot.
    Thank your concern
