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.

On one of the Nic's remove the gateway

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

kirankkhblCommented:
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 ?

Jason WatkinsIT Project LeaderCommented:
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.

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