Typing in the IP address directly gets around it but it's an inconvenience. A few sites work, most don't, but all work using just the IP
google is at 126.96.36.199 you may find it handy for getting around the web whilst VM resolve things
http://www.selfseo.com/find_ip_address_of_a_website.php is working & allows you to get an IP address from the site name.
