I can ping a real world address but I cannot ping localhost. The hosts file
is ok. I cannot ping yahoo. When I set the IP to obtain, it won't obtain an
address. If I give it an address and put in the gateway and dns, I can ping
the internet address, but not a friendly name. It sounds like a tcp/ip or
winsock problem. When I remove Winsock and remove the network adapter and
reboot, that should rebuild both, but the result is the same.
