>>>>>>>>>>>> SUCCESS    THANK YOU BRUCE, KIERAN & EVERYONE ELSE WHO HELPED!!!!   <<<<<<

Sorry, I accidently sent the previous email prematurely.

For the record I used setup:

DCHP -> Primary & Secondary DNS to values from /etc/resolv.conf

              Gateway   Default Gateway   to  192.168.1.1   (which is what XP expected, it had been 192.168.1.254)

ping yahoo
& surfing
both work :-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-)


 
Will the ISP DNS server numbers be constant?
For ideal reliability, should make a script to copy them someplace and restart something?
If so, where should they go & what would need to be restarted?

Thanks,
Chip

There's your problem.  The default gateway is WRONG.
It should be the IP of the DL box -- 192.168.1.254

There's your second problem.  DL doesn't run DNS by default.

The easiest solution is to go into the DL 'setup' program and change the
default gateway that your dhcp server hands out and the DNS servers to
the IP addresses of your ISP's DNS servers.

If you don't know your ISP's DNS servers, at the DL command prompt, run:

  cat /etc/resolv.conf
