Windows 7: Problem with DNS

Problem with DNS


I experience a problem with my network.

I have internet connection, I manage to surf the internet with chrome. I manage to connect to my PC from another PC (Teamviewer). But:
- in a command prompt, if i try to ping Google, I have the error message "Ping request could not find host Google. Please check the name and try again." If I try with IP adresss, it works.
- filezilla doesn't manage to connect to a ftp server (even with IP adress)

I try a lot of basics action but it is always the same:
- restart computer, restart modem
- ipconfig /flushdns ; ipconfig /registerdns ; ipconfig /release; ipconfig /renew
- use openDNS instead of automatic DNS server
- disable IPv6

In the network connection list, I have 3 active items:
- local network
- local network connection 3 (VMware virtual Ethernet adapter)
- VMware Network Adapter VMnet8

and 5 inactive items:
- bluetooth
- 3 wireless connection
- local network connection 2 (TAP-Windows adapter V9)

Thank you for your help!
