DNS not working on new server

I have setup a new Microsoft server 2008 R2 as a domain controller for a small remote site.
For some reason the DNS does not appear to be working at all. The server cannot access the outside internet at all, i must have misconfigured something but i am at a loss as to what!

Router: 192.168.0.1
Server: 192.168.0.2

I have attached a picture of an ipconfig /all and the status of my network adapter on the server.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 ipconfig /all
 lan status

From your server, can you do a tracert to some live IP?  ie
tracert 4.2.2.2

Need to check to see if you are getting out to the internet from the server.

Is your DNS server service started?

From the server, at a cmd line, if you type nslookup
what is returned?

If you change the primary dns server to be 4.2.2.2 can you surf the internet by name?

Hi,

here is a tracert.
 tracert
DNS service is definitely running.
I will try nslookup in 5 minutes along with changing the dns server.

Remove the 8.8.8.8 address from your TCP\IP settings.

Make sure you have a DNS Forwarders setup.

The problem seemed to be the gateway 0.0.0.0
I opened a command prompt and executed:

route delete 0.0.0.0

This seemed to resolve my problem!
