My girlfriend rang me today because she couldn't get her Xnet dial up connection to work on her Compaq laptop (XP home ed).

The dialing and connection part all go fine and the balloon comes up saying "connected at 49.2kb/s" but she cannot access any web pages. I got her to try both firefox and internet explorer and got her to disable zone alarm, still no go.

Here is the weird bit. I got her to ping www.google.com and it was successful! So the next thing I got her to try was the IP of www.google.com in her browsers. Still no go.

What the heck would be causing this?

If you use nslookup you should find that the IP number of Google is 58.28.4.2

You may be able to go 'ping 58.28.4.2' - if you get a response, the internet is working but you have a DNS problem.

Where did you get that from.
Google is 66.102.7.147

nslookup gives me the following:

nslookup www.google.com
Server: 58.28.4.2
Address: 58.28.4.2#53

Non-authoritative answer:
www.google.com canonical name = www.l.google.com.
Name: www.l.google.com
Address: 66.102.7.147
Name: www.l.google.com
Address: 66.102.7.99

Johnd:

The first lines (Server: 58.28.4.2) from the nslookup output shows which DNS server is performing the address resolution - in this case 58.28.4.2 is the DNS server of Xnet. For the record Xnet has a 2nd DNS server at 58.28.6.2...

The address for google.com should be uncer the non-authoritative answer section...
