No, only if you are using a URL.  If you use an IP address
the ping will go through just fine without a DN Server.
The Server only translates the URL into an IP address and
your browser uses that transparently to connect with
the site.  You never know that that is what is happening
behind the scenes.
Now let us wait for Lisi's results from the routers and computers
she is trying.
Thank you!
