No DNS resolution on file server from domain controller

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

Post the results of IPCONFIG /ALL
You said "added a second network cable to server" - do you mean you replaced it or you added a second connection to the network?  IF so, what IP did you give the second NIC?  What IP settings...?

What type of DNS are you using?  Do you have a forwarder defined and also the same question as above, how is your 2nd interface configured can you post the ipconfig data for each Interface here?  You may only define one default gateway ... so maybe an ipconfig /all.

Hi Daniel, you mentioned you turned off the firewall, is it the microsoft built in firewall or any other type? Do you have any other network security software or device in your network?
