Internet Problems

Ok i managed to get Mandrake 10.2 installed and i maanged to get my modem installed and connected to the internet

I have put in the DNs servers etc and its all correct

I can go to sites if i use the IP address but not using the Name e.g.

I know this sounds like a dns problem but i have definitely got the correct servers what can i be doing wrong??

Does 'netstat -an | more' show any port connections to port 53?

How have you set up the DNS servers?

Can you confirm that the DNS server IP addresses are in /etc/resolv.conf?
