Strange DNS issue!

I have a remote server which was working just fine. 2 days ago, I ran yum update and it gave me repomd.xml. I figured out that my server is not resolving any URL. I tried wget and nslookup.

[root@ns1 ~]# nslookup
> server
Default server:
Default server:
Default server:

Non-authoritative answer:
*** Can't find No answer

I get these errors. I even rebooted the machine bot to no use. Anyone knows any fix for that.

It is generally considered a bad idea to include your real IP addresses in any public forum.

Have you checked your routing?
> /sbin/route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface     *        U     0      0        0 eth0       *            U     0      0        0 lo
default         UG    0      0        0 eth0
Notice the generic addresses that I put into the example.
