Thanks for the suggestion.  Forgive me, I'm quite the novice at this.  
How might I do the above in the absence of a term?

Does a reboot clear the dns lookup cache?  A reboot does not clear up 
my problem.

same MD5 as the first.

Here is a bit more information:
1) the 770 browser works on web servers on my LAN
2) the 770 browser fails on internet sites even when I specify the IP, for google for instance.

Willie, ONWARD!  Through the fog!
