reply for a better way to post. In the meantime, your computer is set to
get DNS from this organization:
rgName: Curatel, LLC
Address: 1605 W. Olympic Boulevard
Address: Suite 800
City: Los Angeles
NetRange: 184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11
NetType: Direct Allocation
If this is your company and the computer is part of a domain, contact your
IT Dept. If this is a standalone computer, set your computer to obtain and
IP address and DNS automatically.

Since you are using a web interface, you may not realize that this is really
a newsgroup. You will get far more out of this resource if you learn to use
a newsreader. There are many good newsreaders for Windows, but you can use
Outlook Express (XP) or Windows Mail (Vista) since you already have it.
