Connected to Internet, Pages will not load. DNS?

Hi there,

Thanks to some incredibly helpful people yesterday, I have successfully set up a wireless network so that three computers can connect simulatenously to the Internet through the one PPPoE connection.

There is a problem with one of the computers. Although it is connected to the Internet, whenever I try to load any web page, I am getting the 'Address not valid' DNS error in IE. The address changes to read http:///

I think I am right in thinking this is a DNS problem. I have changed the settings so that the IP and DNS settings are obtained manually, but still nothing.

Here is the ipconfig/all for the one that is NOT working:

If you can access the BBC website using this link click here and not using the name then yes it's DNS. Check the DNS server address in the router config and try to ping that from the problematic machine.

Notice that in your local area connection listed that

“NetBIOS over Tcp/ip. . . . . . . . : Disabled”

Check that “NetBIOS over Tcp/ip” is - Enable

And NetBIOS Setting - Default is selected

Internet Protocol (IPv4) is the basis of today's Internet

IPv6 most people do not need this protocol at least not for a few years
You need to uninstall it, click Start, click Run, type CMD, and hit Enter.

At the prompt type ipv6 uninstall, then hit Enter.

A reboot will be required for the changes to take affect.

DISABLING IPv6

Unlike Windows XP, IPv6 in Windows Vista cannot be uninstalled. However, you can disable IPv6 in Windows Vista by doing one of the following:

* In the Connections and Adapters folder, obtain properties on all of your connections and adapters and clear the check box next to the Internet Protocol version 6 (TCP/IPv6) component in the list under This connection uses the following items. This method disables IPv6 on your LAN interfaces and connections, but does not disable IPv6 on tunnel interfaces or the IPv6 loopback interface.

* Add the following registry value (DWORD type) set to 0xFF:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters\DisabledComponents

This method disables IPv6 on all your LAN interfaces, connections, and tunnel interfaces but does not disable the IPv6 loopback interface. You must restart the computer for this registry value to take effect.
