I have been doing work with Ethernet lately and attempted to use the WebClient example code. However, when running the code without modification, I could not retrieve a request from Google. On further inspection, it appears that the IP given, 173.194.33.104, does not resolve to Google or anything at all.

You're quite right about the range of IPs corresponding to Google. Regardless, the IP given in the example code is not in the range that corresponds to Google.
