    OS 98SE, from the command line I can ping the dns server, but am unable to resolve names. When checking the properties of the Intel Pro100+ PCI adapter it does not show TCI/IP as being bound, added IPX/SPX and that shows up in adapter bindings. Have removed adapter, restarted system, shut down & reinstalled adapter & added TCP/IP, still does not show up & yet I can ping known IP address. Have added DNS to TCP/IP properties. Computer functions normaly , just can't brouse with IE or AOL.
    Where do I go from here other that format & reinstal OS

    Are you sure your DNS server is working correctly?

    When you added the DNS info the TCP/IP settings did you add the IP or the server name? Double check these settings. I do not think you need to reinstall the OS just missing some small detail.
