I had to replace a motherboard in my home machine and now cannot get DNS to function correctly. I have installed all the current drivers for the new motherboard.
Everything is working great except the LAN. For some weird reason I can ping the network and the router as well as IP addresses on the Internet. I cannot ping a domain name which tells me there is a DNS problem.
I have removed/reinstalled the Nic, updated the driver, tried multiple DNS settings (I use a static IP with a cable modem and NAT router). It is mind numbing. Tried both IE and Netscape. All other computers on the netwrk can still get to the web and share data.
SMC Barricade 7004 router (wired and wireless)
MSI KT4AV-L motherboard with onboard LAN - AMD 1700+
Problem computer connects via wired ethernet
Static IP address
The confusing part is that I am using the same DNS settings I had before the original motherboard blew up. I have tried using the router gateway (suggested by SMC) and the DNS for comcast.net.
Still no luck. Can ping the Google IP address but the domain name.
