Router working but no internet

  1. Hi - I have a problem with a friend's computer. He has a new Netgear DG834G router that works fine on my computer. On his machine, running win xp the router says it is connected but internet will not work. When you go to any web page it just says page not found. I did the following:
    In CMD ran ipconfig/release, ipconfig/flushdns, ipconfig/renew. I then tried to ping news.google.com - did not work

    If I did a ping of 74.125.19.104 it opened the Google website. Have DNS set for automatic from ISP, but on this machine cannot find websites if I type in their name. As I said, if I use the router on my machine on the same phone line then everything works OK.

    Is it possible that a virus has messed up something with the DNS settings in the registry. Please help.
