Yeah, I've found that ipconfig /flushdns immediately corrects the problem for that system for a few minutes. It almost seems like this intranet is the victim of DNS poisoning by its own routers...

doing that now. I'll try it out for a day or so, plus some more synchronized browsing tests to really pinpoint exactly when and why this happens. I've already contacted Belkin a few times, but I think my support case has been thrown in the bin by now.

Belkin Share N300 802.11n (6 months old), Belkin N Wireless (3 years old), and some unknown older Linksys. I've set one system to use Google DNS, and don't seem to have any issues there. For some reason, if I manually set the DNS IP on the newer Belkin itself to anything else but automatic, it blocks completely.

@Scott McClenning: Regular consumer ISP's provide the internet service, with the typical single, non-static IP address assignment to the account/building. I'm not privy to how the ISPs' gateway or DNS servers are configured. My router(s) lay behind the ISP-supplied modems.

@Scott McClenning: Browse or ping by IP address always works fine (as far as I can tell). Intranet connections always work fine if by router-assigned IP address. It's just the Internet DNS queries that fail. I'll try and dig up the drivers for this one machine and run through more virus/malware checks to see if that works.

@Trezoid: I could just be looking for patterns that aren't really there. But yes, when this one laptops uses the internet in any way, the trouble seems to start then for everyone. Regarding age: I also have another ancient, rusty laptop always on running as a server, and it has never appeared to affect DNS queries for anyone else.

comment (wake on lan in any reduced power state) Wake on any request, with no magic packet needed?
Also, this is a "because we can" situation, meaning because this isn't a professionally driven case requiring equipment more specialized than an atari 64 to run this server, the fact that this particular setup isn't recommended for industry server standards is already understood.

So basically in this case, to wake up the machine, the wakeup command must come from the router, modem, or access point in front of the server?
