Not good :-(

Something very strange is going on, in both cases with host (www.fsr.net
and www.yahoo.com) you got back information (name lookup and at least one
IP address), which suggests that your system is getting FQDN info when
hooked to the router.
I see by another post by you.....

.... confirms this.
It is my understanding that the Dell (1184) Wireless Router is made by
D-Link. The same company that makes my Wireless Router (Dlink-713P). The
firmware that was in place for my wireless router was causing a similar
problem as yours. I downloaded and updated the firmware, maybe this will
help you also. I do not know if you have updated firmware in place for
your Dell wireless router or not. I have provided the link in case you do
not, or do not know if the firmware is current.
(watch for word warp the above link is one long line)
