Problems after getting new Wan/Lan Gateway
I just switched broadband providers, and even though I set the new gateway to the same IP address and everything, my Debian (VMWare) machines don't resolve DNS.
I found this:
bash prompt# cat /etc/resolv.conf # Generated by NetworkManager domain gateway.2wire.net search gateway.2wire.net nameserver 192.168.1.254
(from my interfaces file)
# The primary network interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.25 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.254

Windows figured this out because it is most likely using DHCP which would provide this information.
I take it you are using static addresses on your linux box so you need to update the resolv.conf file by hand. Simply copy the DNS ip address from the windows machine to the resolv.conf file replacing the ip address listed on the line with nameserver.
You also might want to think about changing the domains on the 2 lines above this also to show the correct domain.
