Make sure your DNS is configered corectlly.

use nslookup in the client and see if it give thr result in acceptable time range.
Please post ipconfig/all of server and workstation.

I've run nslookup on a client pc & it generates info about the server almost instantly
ok when you but the NSlookup and give you your DNS.
write
www.msn.com
www.yahoo.com

and make sure it gies you the ip for these sites very quick,.


also, are you conected to internet in the clitse directlly to internet, or do you have ISA server.

if your clients are connected directlly, add your ISP dns as long as your local DNS.

Don't cut off your nose to spite your face...

While there is nothing in an IPCONFIG /ALL that would compromise the security of your network (this is the most often requested output in any support forum), there may be items which would provide your identity and therefore compromise your privacy if that is of concern.

Therefore, if you feel that it's necessary, you can modify the domain name, but please only modify anything that is identifiable to something generic.  Such as changing TechSoEasy.local to MyCompany.local.  If you have any public IP addresses, please just replace the last two octets with ***.***, and some people do not like to have the MAC (Physical) address shown... if you like, just modify he last few sections of these to **-**-**.

Please post the requested reports as requested if you truly want help in solving your problem.
