resolve hostnames


hi,
i am on LAN (using cable) My Ip=131.107.16.16 and my server's ip=131.107.16.1, the main problem is that my linux box is unable to resolve hostnames, like whenever i try to connect to (or ping) messenger.hotmail.com it does'nt work but when i use its ip instead of hostname it works (means i can connect but can't resolve), my server(cable provider) has m$ isa server installed and i've m$ isa client on my windows and it resolves hostnames on my win machine but when it comes to linux it doen't resolve(as no m$ isa on linux) my /etc/resolv.conf looks like this

nameserver 127.0.0.1
nameserver 192.168.0.1
search 192.168.0.1

i've also tried DNS=131.107.16.1 but nuthings workin

and my ipconfig /all on win machine looks like this

Windows IP Configuration

Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : abc
Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Unknown
IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No
WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :

Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-A0-C9-AF-34-9F
Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 131.107.16.16
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 137.107.16.1
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 131.107.16.1

any one got any idea about this???

another things is my linux machine doesn't resolve hostnames of other users on my lan too

ok so change that nameserver entry to the DNS ip you have there... can you ping the IP itself? if so then with that IP (assuming it is correct) then it should be reoslving no probs.

wel even after disabling m$ isa f/w client on win machine i'm unable to ping any hostnames, that means that m$ isa client is resolving hostnames(somehow but dunno how) and i've already tried DNS=131.107.16.1(lan servers ip)

of course, I get <20ms pings to those servers... maybe you can use the name servers of another major ISP/backbone if sprint's are too far away from you.
