    i have problem to surf but i still can ping my dns (accross my router)
    my lan adapter does not get address from the dhcp that works fine with all other computers, so i had to configure my tcp/ip addr manually,
    ipconfig does not work as well
    if i try to access a web site with its actual ip addr it works fine
    but if i try to access same web site using its www. (name) it does not get there
    pls advice

    Hello Jacism,

    It sounds like you are having name resolution (DNS) problems. This could be caused by a number of things, including Spyware/Adware.

    The first thing I would do is unplug the router for 10 seconds, and plug it back in. This will reset the router, in case it is the source of the problem.

    If that does not work, then I would run WinsockFix to fix any TCP/IP issues on your computer. This will wipe out the staic IP address you have set up:

    If that does not resolve it, reset your static IP address, making sure you have also set up your DNS servers. Here's a link with a good description of how to set this up:

    http://portforward.com/networking/static-xp.htm

    Notice the DNS servers section in the last picture on the page. Set your router address as the Primary DNS server, then set a secondary DNS sever (typically your ISP's DNS server address).

    You could use 4.2.2.1, or 4.2.2.2 as your secondary DNS. These are public DNS servers.

    I hope this helps.
