I have an XP machine using a company standard image that is not allowed on the network for security reasons. I use a DLink DAP1350 to connect to a cable wifi in the office used for no official work.
I can ping and open websites using the ip address but not with the FQDN. The DNS servers are correct as I can use a laptop sitting right next to it with virtually the same parameters (only diff is unit IP) gone from manual IP to DHCP and back several times. Rebooted countless times and no change. nothing in hosts or LMhosts. I installed firefox and it reacts the exact same.
I can't substantially change the image the machine because I'm trying to use this to test AIT resources prior to putting on to the network. I can't reload the image because they are stored on a network share..the same network I can't plug into for security reasons.
Access to the world from that computer only works via IP.Help!!
