Hi people,

Got a laptop here with XP Home SP2.
It is having problems browsing the internet.

It is getting an IP, gateway, DNS etc OK from the router.
I can ping local computers by their computer name or IP.
I can ping the router OK.
I can ping the DNS server (Xnet) OK.
I can ping IPs of any websites OK.
I can browse websites by using the IP address OK.

I can't ping any websites by name.
I can't browse any websites by name.

I can do an nslookup on a website name and it returns the correct IP address.

I have tried winsockxpfix, manually setting IP, GW & DNS, different browsers, flushing DNS cache. There are no errors in the event log.
Everything else on the laptop is running fine.

What else can I try?
I am busy installing SP3 to see if that fixes it.

Probably something to do with Xnet's current probs

I'm using my laptop on the same router, connected to xnet, with no problems at all.
Also the person it belongs to has Xtra at home where the problem began.
