I am troubleshooting for a friend who has a home network setup with a desktop and laptop. Both connect to the internet through the same cable. (They switch the cable to the device they want connected.) The desktop runs Microsoft windows XP Pro and connects fine. The laptop is running Vistas Home. It is set to DHCP and receives a proper address and the same gateway and DNS information as the desptop. (192.168.1.13, 255.255.255.0, Gateway 192.168.1.1 and DNS 192.168.1.1)
I can ping the gateway successfully.
I can ping web sites from the laptop by their IP address but a ping with domain name does not resolve.
I disabled User Access Control.
I successfully relased and renewed the IP address.
Restarted the router (Satelite/cable setup)
I flushed the DNS resolver cache.
We still cannot get a connection to web site through the browser of ping by domain name. Any suggestions?
