Windows 2008 Server cannot access internet

We have a Domain Controller that is connected to our network that can access any network resources except websites.  When I try to browse a website sometimes it will come up but it looks all messed up.  Like everything is just text, no graphics or anything and it doenst even look like the website.


I tried to ping various sites like google, yahoo and microsoft but still nothing.  I can however ping and access local network resources.  

I verified the server has valid network settings.

Also, I think this may be related, Windows Update doesn't work and it gives us a 80072EFD error code when I try to check for updates.

post your ipconfig /all

Have you tried IE?

For the updates try this

net stop bits
 net stop wuauserv
 Ipconfig /flushdns
 cd "Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader"
 del qmgr0.dat
 del qmgr1.dat
 net start bits
 net start wuauserv
 
That should be a seperate question also.

also tried what you suggested for the windows update problem but still same error code.  I do believe the windows update problem is associated with the other issue as well, that is why I posted it in the same question.

You said this was a domain controller, is it also a DNS server?

Try this
Server Manager --> Configure IE ESC --> click on OFF for Both administrator & Users (Not recommended for security concern  )

why you want to browse in server ?

Only one of the NICS should have a default gateway. I would make sure the configured DNS server can forward queries to Internet sites from the local network.

Sorry it was already answered (DNS), any particular reason the server is not pointing to itself for DNS?
