[ping the IP address ... DNS servers]

Yes, that's how I concluded that they were down, especially since I could still ping other IP addresses that I happened to know.

[hosts file]
I'll have to give that a go, or at least start collecting IP addresses of favored sites.

And have a troll through the registry, now that I think of it. WinNT used to cache the IP addresses of web sites and the like in the registry. Perhaps it still does ... easy way to get a list if so.

If not, I can probably write a bit of code to automate the testing.
