    Hello,
    I have a laptop with a wireless network card built-in.
    I was able to surf the Internet no problem untill after I installed XP SP3.

    Now, I can successfully connect to the wireless router, but I cant surf the
    web UNLESS I enter in the website's IP address.

    For example. I can only get to google.com by typing in 64.223.169.103.
    If I type in the www.google.com into Internet Explorer 8, I get the PAGE
    CANNOT BE DISPLAYED.

    I've tried to flush the DNS and still no luck.

    This has only happened after I installed XP SP3.

    Anyone run into similar issues after installed XP SP3?

    When you do a ipconfig/all where is it trying to get dns from?You can try to
    manually set it and see if that resolves your issue.
