This sounds like you have a misconfigured wattcp.cfg file. The DOS
version of lynx uses a builtin TCP/IP stack, Watt-32. Please look
carefully at your wattcp.cfg file. If you have "my_ip" set to DHCP, it
may automatically find your DNS server. Otherwise, you need to put the
IP address of your DNS server in wattcp.cfg as a line starting
"nameserver=". Your ISP may have changed the IP address of their
nameserver, which would need to be updated in wattcp.cfg. Be sure to
specify either WATTCP.CFG or WATTCP_CFG in your environment, pointing to
the address for the wattcp.cfg file.
