Unable to connect to internet from clients after replacing domain controller

Hello,

I have just replaced a so called domain controller in a Windows 2000 environment because the old PDC started having intermittent hardware issues.  We had two servers one for file shares and the other AD and anti-virus.  The primary one with AD is the one having issues.  Anyways, I did a DCPROMO on the other server installing AD and I transferred all FSMO roles as well as installing DNS.  Everything went over fine and all workstations can login and the map drives but can't get to the internet.  The new PDC can get to the internet fine.  I'm thinking it's a DNS issue but not sure where to look.  Any help is much appreciated.  Thank you.

Check from any machine which is having trouble connecting by issuing  ipconfig/all command and make sure that the DNS address is listed , correct and pointing to your new server IP address , if not enter it manually at the tcp/ip properties and correct it on the   DHCP server.

I had changed the IP address of the new DNS server to what the old DNS server was and this fixed the problem.  Thanks.
