I've been having a problem at work with users browsing the internet. Our current architecture is a 100MB connection, sonicwall firewall, windows 2003 domain controller and windows 7 and 8 machines in the office. All http and https traffic is intermittent. Connect to other sites using RDP, site to site vpn, yahoo messenger, all work. but if I go to a simple website like yahoo.com it times out or finally opens up after a moment. We haven't made any recent changes. In fact we've been pretty much trouble free until today. Our email server is in another office and we seem to be getting email fine but I'm pretty sure most of the exchange traffic is going over the site to site tunnels since the outlook setup would first route to the server locally for email. I checked the server and found we had ran out of IP addresses to assign (DHCP). I deleted some old leases and raised the scope by 30 IPs so we should be fine going forward. Things got better after that and the internet worked. Then, things died again after an hour. However, if i'm on the server I can get to a website easily. But if I go to a PC on the network, they pretty much can't do any web browsing or its spotty. I checked all of my DHCP, DNS settings, restarted everything from the Sonic firewall to the server to the switches. Still no luck. I'm not sure what else to check for. Again, if i get on the server i can browse the web, but from a machine I can't. I went home and was able to rdp back into my machine at work so that i could keep working on it. Still no browsing, but i can do eveyrthing else internet related.
I'm stuck. Help!!!
