    Possibly yes, possibly no. But how can anyone tell you, when they don't
    know what modifications you have made?

    Once you have told us, try:

    % ping 212.58.224.126

    and see if it returns:

    212.58.224.126 is alive

    or

    no answer from 212.58.224.126

    That is the BBC web site. If that works, but your can't get to
    www.bbc.co.uk, it is probably a DNS problem.

    But until you say what you have done, we have no way to help.

    always written in 3 letters (e.g. Jan, not January etc)

    Then you probably need to make sure that /etc/resolv.conf is
    set up correctly and that "dns" is on the "hosts" line in
    /etc/nsswitch.conf.

    You should have a line like:

    hosts: files dns

    in /etc/nsswitch.conf

    If it just says

    hosts: files

    then that is your problem. I suspect that is what it is.

    I had a brain bypass there. As someone else pointed out, you need
    /etc/resolv.conf right too. The IPs are the addresses of your name
    servers, which your ISP should give you.

    sparrow /export/home/drkirkby % cat /etc/resolv.conf
    domain althorne.org
    nameserver 212.67.120.148
    nameserver 212.67.96.128
