      Dns / Ip Config Mix Up!

      Hi, I have recently bought a laptop, with Vista already installed and have just installed Sky Broadband. The problem is I can not connect to the internet, if I type in (for example) Google - A message pops up saying 'cant connect to internet' or page not regonised - something like that. However, if I type in the IP address for google.co.uk - I can access that particular internet page. It seems that my laptop can not recognise DNS, but does recognise IP address. I have spoken to SKY BB support, but they have not been able to resolve the problem and I am not sure what else to try! Any suggestions?

      just sounds like a setup issue. Try taking a screen shot of the config dialogue. I would take some screen shots of my own to show you how it should look but my copy needs activating and we haven't got our licence servers up and running yet.
