I have one windows XP out of 13 that is unable to ping internet addresses by name. I can ping internet addresses by number, if i try ping -a no resolution occurs. Right now I can go to IE and type in an IP and connect. I can run NSlookup which will succesfully find the address. If I make an entry into host file I can then get to the website. This and all machines get IP info from a DHCP server. I have plugged a different machine into the same port and it worked fine. I tried a second account with the same problem.
