DNS not working cannot find web sites

Hi I am having problems with my computer which uses a wired connection to a Netgear router DG634G v2 wireless router. I cannot connect to sites unless I serch on Google for them and follow the link so I believe that the DNS (domain name search) is not working and the PC just waits. E-mail and MSN Mesenger are not affected.

My wireless laptop is not affected.

Is anyone else having similar poblems?

Rob,
Um, are you running W2K or XP, have you updated your system recently and do you run HP products? If so, then this http://blogs.technet.com/msrc/archive/2006/04/15/425311.aspx may be relevant. One of the symptons is you type something like www.ibm.com into IE and nothing happens but if you type http://www.ibm.com it works Sad . BTW, the fix didn't work for me (on W2K) so I remove the patch Cool

Thank you for pointing me to the solution to my problem. I have removed the microsoft patch KB908531and internet explorer is back to normal! I certainly owe you one.

The Microsoft updates only show up in the menu if you tick the box at the top of the add/remove programs page! I found this page which was useful too.

Microsoft To Release Patch.

On Tuesday/today Microsoft will reissue the MS06-015 update, which has caused lockups and other problems with HP devices and some drivers.
