why my intranet home page displays diferent using IP instead host-name?

Hi guys,

We developed an intranet site lets say myIntranet, it displays good, but in my company there are 5 different segments of network, let say 192.168.8.XXX and 192.168.5.XXX,

The server that holds the intranet is on the first segment, so any computer in this network segment can use http://myintranet and the page displays perfect, but the computers on the other segment can't see the page, so I put the IP address on the DNS forward lookup zones of the domain controller then the computers on segment 5 can see the page.

So if I use http://myintranet it displays good but I use http://192.168.8.xxx the page displays a little different on the same browser and the same computer.

Double check if either address is putting the browser into compatibility mode.

Well, I just did it in Chrome and it displays good with IP and hostname, so yea the problem is the compatibility on the explorer.

I will check the compatibility mode.

Thank's Gary.
