    MY office just signed up for Verizon ADSL service and I'm having a strange problem with DNS.

    Some machines on the LAN can get out to the internet just fine. Other machines can not get out to see web pages. The reason I believe it's a DNS problem is I can ping all sites using the xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx notation but I can not ping any sites when I use www.yahoo.com. I know it's not the machines because when I set up the machines to access the old dsl connection it connects just fine. We are using a linksys cable/dsl router to connect to the outside world for the new connection. I've tried clearing out the DNS cache with no success. :confused:

    Is each workstation configurated with Obtain an IP Adress automatically and Enabed DNS? Delete any DNS Server Search Order entries. The Linksys cable/dsl router act as a DHCP host and it should provide the DNS as well.
