New Windows XP networking problem
Every so often Windows simply loses DNS, it can't resolve any host names. Here is my setup. ADSL, wireless router hooked up to the modem, desktop hooked up to the router. What is strange is at the same time I can be connected on my laptop with wifi and have no DNS problems whatsoever. The only way I can fix this is to reboot. Any thoughts/suggestions?
New "ipconfig /flushdns" doesn't help?

New Re: "ipconfig /flushdns" doesn't help?
No. I have tried releasing the connection then renewing it and flushing the DNS cache. Nothing but a reboot helps.
New Re: "ipconfig /flushdns" doesn't help?
lets say the router is 192.168.0.1 subnet mask 255.255.255.0
and your DNS is 4.2.2.2

instead of having the desktop use DHCP (obtain address automatically)
code it in
192.168.0.2
255.255.255.0
4.2.2.2

New Once you've done that
Go into your internet gateway/router/whatever (the device the is responsible for handing out DHCP leases) and exclude a range including the one you just statically assigned. That will make sure it doesn't accidentally hand the same address to another computer - no fun when that happens.

New Waitaminnitritethar!
I always have ISC's DHCP server ping before handing out.

Oh, yeah oops, I forgot, we aren't using a "proper" dhcp server here probably.
