Name resolution problem.

  Stonechatz 15:50 03 Apr 2008

My DELL PC can get out onto the net/intranet via IP address only; it fails to resolve names. I have attempted the

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

command - the reset log shows no data, suggesting that the TCP/IP setup has not been changed successfully. Any ideas as to what to do next?

TCP/IP is not the problem, whatever your setup, you need to provide correct DNS server addresses. Connection method, hardware and ISP?

If you
start-run-cmd and type
ipconfig /all
what comes up for the DNS servers ?

Are you logging in to AOL or just leaving the router to manage that and connecting with IE or Firefox ?
