What is this machine:  Dns Servers. . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1

192.168.0.1  is this a Windows DNS server?  I am guessing that this is actually your router...  If this is true, you need to make sure that every machine in your Windows domain is using the Windows 2003 DNS (and not pointing to a router for DNS resolution)

All machines in the domain must use the Windows DC/DNs server for DNS resolution.  The Windows DC/DNs server should then forward requests to the router or external DNS server to get resolution on the internet.

you will have tons of problems if you can't talk to the domain with DNS... fix this and you will be good to go...


In the DNS console, right click your server name and choose properties from the drop down box.  now click the Forwarders tab and enter the 192.168.0.1 address here...  this will allow you to resolve to the internet.

Check the event viewer on the server...  The DNs services might have been messed up because your were pointing to the router.  

Set the server to point to itself in TCP/IP (for DNs)  (never put the router IP in for your clients TCP/IP properties).  Then reboot the server... when it comes back online, it should create the DNS records for the domain.  Once this happens, the clients should be able to find information about your domain in DNS ...and connectivity/resolution should start working.
