Network working Internet not working.


I have an old Amd Duron @850Mhz, 128MB RAM, and running Windows Millenium. I can't access any websites. If i start Internet Explorer (or Firefox) I get Page Cannot Be Displayed message. The local network is working, I can browse my network computers, ping them and get a response. If I ping I get Invalid Request message. If I ping any IP from the internet I get the same error message. Does anyone know how I might get Internet working?

Thank you,

Apologies in advance.

While I could write I would check the DNS lookup, I don't write how as that is widely documented on the web. Frankly it would take less time to reinstall Windows ME than try to repair this (most of the time.)
