my childrens p.c is acting up a litle at the moment. it is running windows xp and is connected to the internet through a router, via an ethernet cable.
now we have no problem playing games on line with it, but it wont make a connection to any sites on the internet that i type into the address bar. now here is tyhe twist, if i type in the ip address lets say 188.8.131.52 it will find the site (yahoo).
there seems to be a problem with the computer converting a name into an address! if i type in http://www.google.com
it comes up with page cannot be found. i notice at the bottom it seems to be searching for 184.108.40.206 !
what could the problem be?
