On a 2000 server and every computer on the network, when I ping anything, I receive a response from resale.networksolutions.com and an ip address of  There is just an actiontec modem providing dhcp.  I uninstalled spam software from one computer, but can't find where this is being redirected on the network.  Does anyone know where this is coming from and how to get rid of it?

When you ping any of the system in your network....the request has to go to DNS Server first and then outside....are you running DNS Server on your server ?

>>>Does anyone know where this is coming from and how to get rid of it?
There is a way to check this. Download a program called "Etherel" from net and capture all the packets when you ping and then post here or you will come to know from where the request is comming and passed: -

Did you try Etherel ? this type of problem can be solved using Etherel...you will come to know the destination source address when client sends DNS Query.
