Default Using VB.NET and XML offline

I'm having trouble reading in an XML file while my machine is offline.
I suspect it is trying to get a schema or something of that ilk from the net. It is throwing an exception when I try to load the XML file. Can I use XmlDocument without being on the Internet? If so, what do I need to do?

I found the problem. The XML had an external reference to a DTD that was on the Internet. This was in the second line of the XML file,
<!DOCTYPE ...> with a reference to a URL on the Internet. When this line is commented out, the XML is not checked against the DTD file, but the program works the same with or without Internet connection.
