Can't use DNS service with dial-up connection


Bucky Kid


I have successfully set-up a connection on my notebook via mobile
phone but there's no domain lookup, I can ping by IP but
not by name. I have set both DNS addresses of my ISP in Networking ->
TCP/IP -> DNS Manually

So now, what can be the causes and what is standard diagnostics for
this situation? (WinXP Pro Workstation)
Thanks in adv. for each useful information.

Some mobile phones work differently them main stream Network components.
It might be that if you are using the regular ISP's DNS it would not work,
and you need to ask your mobile carrier for DNS.
