I can ping the outside world with a url number, but when I use the name I cannot network. A friend said it might be the DNS settings but I've tried those - any ideas????

I'm at home with a cable modem. The modem is working fine because I know I can ping - but only uising the numbers for a web site.

thanks in advance!

sorry about that - I am using win98 and I am trying to get on the net. I can ping using a number such as 4.2.2.2 but when I try and ping using www.yahoo.com or ay other NAME it will not work - I have used up may hours the last week trying to find a solution. My TCP/IP is binded to the network card as usual.
