users losing network connections to applications

Weird problem.  Last week the users were having internet issues where some pages would pop up fine, but if you clicked a link it would error out.  It turned out that we had to change the dns server from our local computer to 8.8.8.8 and it started working fine.

Now this week users keep losing connection to applications on our servers.  Sometimes they can get on fine, other times they have to restart the computer and it will connect.  I can ping the servers just fine, and e-mail and internet work, too.

It looks like if I log on as an administrator I have no problems.  The security settings haven't been changed on anyone, so what could be happening?

Sound like you are having DNS issues.

the recommended way is to set the primary DNS server on all your clients to the internal DNS/DC IP, then set 8.8.8.8 as a forwader on your Local DNS/DC.

What would cause people to keep losing connections to the servers?  It's not happening to everyone and it doesn't happen at the same time for every user.  Also, like I said, if I log on as an administrator there is no problem.
