Hi logicmorph,

Try resetting the winsock and TCP/IP stack with this tool (created for win2k and winXP)

is the problem on this machine only, or an all of them?

what happens is you issue a nslookup <servername> command where servername is a server on your network?

are you going though s firewall? (if so open ports in this order TCP53 UDP53)

is DNS running on the server (start >run >cmd >net start {enter} )

if youve done all of this (and the DNS entry in the TCP settings of the client is correct)
put in the IP of your doamin controller as the secondary DNS
