Hi, having DNS issues seemingly out of the blue, or perhaps after recent updates:

-I can resolve an address with nslookup or dig, ipv4 or ipv6
-I can go to a website by its IP Address, but not name, with firefox, konqueror or wget
-Other computers on the same network can access the internet normally (one windows xp, one xubuntu)

Would appreciate any pointers. Having no luck to date in solving this.

Running Ubuntu 8.04 on AMD64 with 4Gb Ram
