Surfing Problem

A few people I know have had a problem with their browsers not being able to surf with domain names or URLs. When I used my computer with their modem/router I surfed with no problem. Then I noticed that their computers can access their router with its IP address but not with its domain name, e.g. some Westell routers use the URL "launchmodem" to access their interfaces.

From this, I guessed that I could go to Google by using their IP address (64.233.161.147) in the address bar instead of their URL. At least I know that their browser works and this would be cool if we could remember every IP address on the net, or if the browser at least could get the IP addresses from links when we click on them.

Does anyone know what causes this or how we can fix this? Sometimes, I can restore to an earlier date but you know how fickle that app is.
