Hello, Trond -
Try shutting off the DNS Client service on your machine.
Right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage".
Under "Services and Applications" stop and then disable
the "DNS Client" service. This should fix you right up.
Windows XP removes servers from it's list of available
DNS servers if they don't respond within an appropriate
time - eventually you can be left with no DNS servers.
You don't need the DNS Client service unless you're part
of a Win2k or later domain.
