      Hi,

      Can you provide some information, Are your workstations runing TCP/IP? (Or using netbios or IPX/SPX)
      If possible post some network configuration information.
      Some things to look at:
      If they are using TCP/IP are they configured to use the correct Network? Is the gateway address correct? is the DNS address correct? Can the workstations ping the gateway, can the gateway ping an internet site? Try a Tracert from one of the workstations to an internet site.
      Try it both by IP and FQDN.
      Confirm your DNS is working.

      Lets try this

      lets see if we can get this to work

      Domain controller – 192.168.1.100
      Router address – 192.168.1.1 (I am guessing )
      subnet mask – 255.255.255.0 (I am guessing)

      the workstations IP configuration

      IP addrerss range 192.168.1. X ( “x” representing any unused ip address from 1892.168.1.2 thru 192.168.1.254)
      Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
      Default Gateway – 192.168.1.1

      Dns options (I will use “open DNS” as an expample) (http://www.opendns.com/start/)
      more information here (http://www.online-tech-tips.com/cool-websites/free-dns-server/)

      preferred: 208.67.222.222
      alternate: 208.67.220.220

      If you are using yoru Domain Controller as the DNS server you want to use, then there may be a configuration issue in the DNS server setup.
      to test tyhat, use the Open dns server listed above, refresh you workstations dns information (ipconfig /flushdns)
      then try doing a NSlookup to see where it is attempting to resolve the addresses from.

      example:
      C:\nslookup http://www.microsoft.com
      Server: PrimaryDNS1.enterprisenet.org
      Address: 10.1.5.3
      Non-authoritative answer:
      Name: lb1.www.ms.akadns.net
      Addresses: 207.46.19.254, 207.46.19.190, 64.4.31.252
      Aliases: http://www.microsoft.com, toggle.www.ms.akadns.net
      g.www.ms.akadns.net

      please let em know if that helps
