    what kind of symptom do you see? Timeout, site not found, forbidden...

    try this;
    get a command prompt and enter nslookup
    you should get back the IP Address:
    then enter ping and you should get
    some timing info, not timeouts

    *if* nslookup fails to return and address, you have a DNS issue,
    *if* ping timesout, you have a path issue or a net admin restriction
