    I have a Windows XP laptop that I am having trouble with. When I try to go
    to google.com it goes to IP 207.44.194.56, whereas if I ping google from my
    DNS server I get 66.223.50.94. When I do an ipconfig it states that it is
    using my internal DNS server, so why is IE trying to go to the incorrect IP
    address? All other computers on my network resolve the name correctly.

    Thanks!
