No DNS resolution on file server from domain controller

Last Modified: 2018-05-29
We recently removed remote desktop services/role from a server 2008R2, after we did that we are having DNS issues.  Network says we have internet, can ping but cannot ping www.google.com or nslookup the domain controller(not this server).  We can RDP into the server and all other computers on the networkare fine Also, weird thing is when we validate IP settings, it gives the multiple gateway error.
we've tried;
rebooted the server,
added a second network cable to server
turned off firewall.

Any ideas is helpful starting to cause issues
