No software firewall anymore, and the router's firewall couldn't be involved

Norton AV 2003 was running, but I uninstalled it... still no change.

OK, that's below.

Nope, I can *ping* localhost (and anywhere else!) just fine.

Thanks for your patient help!

1091: RSVP TCP Service Provider
The "Disable Reverse DNS" caught my eye (can't say why, though) so I flipped it
and get the same failures. Another problem is that while I can ping any named
host on the 'net, I can't do nslookup!:
C:\ nslookup ftp.apple.com
*** Can't find server name for address 18.104.22.168: No response from server
*** Can't find server name for address 22.214.171.124: No response from server
*** Default servers are not available
*** UnKnown can't find ftp.apple.com: No response from server
Those nameserver addresses are correct and they do work from my other PC.
Next steps? Thanks again.
