running WinXP Home on Dell Dim E520 which was recently restored to factory delivery setup (via ctl-f11 at boot and restore)
I was able to get everything working, including access to internet but then during removal of unused AOL s/w I am suddenly unable to reach the internet with my browsers.
From a cmd prompt, I am able to
nslookup www.google.com and also to ping the given address. However, when I enter the IP address into the browser nothing happens (it reports "waiting for reply")
Networking on the WinXP machine appears fine as from the cmd prompt I can telnet onto some LInux servers on my internal network.
Additionally, my internal router/gateway @ 192.168.0.1 (which I can ping) has a web maintainence page but even using this IP in the web browsers don't work.
Can anyone help?!?
