DNS Issue

By techrepublic ·
I am having a problem with my internet. ABout every few hours I loose my connection to the internet and then to get it back I have to go into the TCP/IP of the net card and remove the ip address and readd it and then the it comes back on. We manage our own dns internally and have zoneedit handle the external dns. I have attached the error message below to see if anyone has some help for me
Thanks Brian

The system failed to register host (A) resource records (RRs) for network adapter
with settings:

Adapter Name : {CEC503B2-E202-4829-ABF3-98BD565D96D5}
Host Name : eliezer
Primary Domain Suffix :
DNS server list :,
Sent update to server :
IP Address(es) :

The reason the system could not register these RRs was because of a security related problem. The cause of this could be (a) your computer does not have permissions to register and update the specific DNS domain name set for this adapter, or (b) there might have been a problem negotiating valid credentials with the DNS server during the processing of the update request.

You can manually retry DNS registration of the network adapter and its settings by typing "ipconfig /registerdns" at the command prompt. If problems still persist, contact your DNS server or network systems administrator. For specific error code, see the record data displayed below.

Are the IP addresses being assigned by DHCP?

Is that error being reported on the client or the DHCP server?

Good call CG. That is most likely the issue.

To me, this is what appears to be the problem.

From the error message, it appears that your DNS server is trying to register with your ISP [your ISP assigned address of] through your external NIC. I'll assume that your DNS server is configured to allow only secure updates and only allow zone transfers to itself, therefore registration of domain resource records reflecting your zone will fail. your ISP isn't a DNS server that is authoritative for your domain and isn't allowed zone transfers.

Question: is your external NIC directly connected to your ISP?

The other possibility is the flip of what I explained. Your ISP is rejecting zone transfers from your DNS server as your DNS server isn't a trusted DNS server.

Thanks Bfilmfan: its the error message stating that registration or records via the NIC so it's whoever has IP as their DNS server is rejecting the update from his DNS server. I'm guessing it's his ISP, but thats what it looks like to me.
