DSL DNS WIERD beat the best at qwest and MotorolaLocked
I have a new DSL connection. It’s Qwest based, uses a Motorola DSL modem.
Here’s the wierd part: modem connects to dsl line fine. Full configured, provides dhcp fine to client computers, from within the modem it does Name resolution fine.
Client XP windows machine set to use DHCP, and automatically obtain dns.
Client sucessfully gets a dhcp address of 192.168.0.64 and assigns the dns as 192.168.0.1 (the modem’s lan port).
Should work RIGHT? Nope. I can ping any address by ip, but not by DNS.
Hardcoded a dns server in the Nic card, same result.
Now the really weird part. my test computer has been on my company network. Even though it correctly picks up the dhcp and dns addresses (without allowing dns to resolve), when I do a nslookup, nslookup defaults to the company private netted dns, it completely ignores what I have put on the nic. I’m thinking this result is part of my failure to resolve.
It does this on 3 different company computers I’ve tried on this DSL connection. Could it be that some sort of policy has set these machines to ignore the dns setting of the nic cards and only to look for the company dns?
I can’t believe 3 different computers have a stack error.
Qwest, motorola, techs, and admins stumped on this one.
any ideas what to try next? (and yes OF COURSE, we’ve ipconfig /flushdns, static IP’d the box, rebuild the DSL circuit, and replaced the modem)
