Just installed Vista RC2 - install went without a hitch, all drivers
be detected including NIC but......(-;
Try to browse using IE and "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"
So I test the basics - can i ping the gateway by IP- Yes
Can I ping google.com - No - ok, so DNS issue but...
I can do a nslookup, uses my ISP's DNS server and I put in google.com and it
resolves it!!! arghh...
I go back into IE and type in 188.8.131.52 and it comes back with Googles
homepage so no connectivity issue...
Now I'm confused - nslookup works, I can also ping by name other PC's on
the LAN (which is using netbios name resolution i guess) but i can't ping by
name, telnet by name or use other apps which need to do a DNS lookup..
My only theory at the moment is that maybe its a IP6 issue - its turned on
by default inVista RC2 but I've unticked it in net connections (can't seem
to uninstall it) and still no go...
Any ideas or similar Vista experiences would be welcome...
