Hi all,

     I am setting up a W2K server with 7 clients. (3 of the clients are windows 2000 and 4 are XP Pro). I have DNS and active directory running on the server. 2 XP clients connect to the domain just fine, the others can't seem to resolve the DNS name. If I ping the server from any of the clients I get a response. If I ping the clients from the server I only get a response from the 2 that connect. If I use the IE browser and type in http://192.168.0.11 I get the "page under construction" message (meaning a good connection). I would like to use static IP's and the servers DNS if possible. The router connected to DSL is a Linksys BEFS11 and the switch it is all connected to is a netgear FS116. I have already tried duplicating the settings of the ones that work on the ones that don't but...no luck.
HELP!!!!

Compare the ipconfig /all result from one working computer with the others. You can write here the result of a working and a not working computer for us to see.
