What is wrong here?

We have a Windows Server 2008 system configured with RRAS and NAT to share an Internet connection. There is no domain and only use is as a router.
It is setup as follows: HOTSPOT<>2008 ROUTER<> LOCAL NETWORK

Everything seems to function correctly other the clients get an error message when trying to access a website;  Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): Unable to resolve the server's  DNS address.

Here are the configurations and routes:

 IP Address      10.182.170.111
    Primary DNS      69.78.235.35
    Secondary DNS      66.174.71.33

The client machine doesn't appear to have a DNS Primary or Secondary server listed in the output from ipconfig/all...

Have you set this on the client? Without DNS it obviously will not resolve addresses...

I know, but why isn't that coming from the Server(router) NAT/DHCP?

Well DNS is an option in ur DHCP scope. So u need to ensure its added
Check the settings to see why its not set

Do u remember setting the option in the scope?

Just to clarify this a bit more what I meant was

Open DHCP, drill into your default scope
Within the scope there is a section called 'Scope Options' - in there you set the DNS server that the scope should push out to clients...

If it doesn't list DNS in that window you right click Scope Options - Configure Options
Select option 006(DNS) and then enter in the server address and you should be ready

On client machine either reboot or do an
ipconfig/release
ipconfig/renew
