Are you able to ping the domain and the domain controller(s)?

Avi LeibzonAuthor Commented:
yes, no problem with ping. I can also access the server via windows //server

can connect to network printers.

i think it might be the firewall. I have a netgear FVS336G installed recently.

could that be causing the issue?

when i do an Ipconfig  /all.  I get primary dns 192.168.1.5 as the server
and secondary dns 192.168.1.1

its so random, though. was able to connect a new machine yesterday. but not the other. all on the same switch into the same firewall

dns: 192.168.1.5

Interesting, then I guess manually entering the DNS and WINS in the TCP/IP settings should fix that.
