out of interest , does you ISp provider provide a Proxy for web browsing ? ( our local authority did )
we had the same thing , our exchange server was rejecting mail to certain places etc .. And running a trace to that server would timeout on certain hops .
But ! web browsing was fine as it was going straight through to there proxys .
Is ths proxy set up on the DNS server?
If you are using a proxy that will explain why web pages load. As the proxy does the DNS lookup not the client machine. Anyway, you need to find some working forwarders. If you are blocked from accessing publicly available ones like Googles or OpenDNS then use your ISPs.
Is the Proxy you have in IE provided by your ISP or local authority ?
Like i said before up there , we had a problem emailing some domains . Turned out it was a routing issue and was nothing to do with our network .
Thanks to everyone who helped out with this. I have learnt a lot from you all and from what I found on the web once I knew where to look. I have now had a decent converation with our ISP and they have provided me with the county DNS IP addresses. Hopefully I'll be able to set these up next week. Thinking back, the clock probably started to slip after we changed from LA as ISP to Updata, and some of the equipment/routing changed.
