First DNS lookup fails....why


First DNS lookup fails....why

I'm setting up a PC for a client. He has a Netgear DG834GT router. My problem is that after rebooting the PC (runniing Windows XP), the first DNS Lookup that's performed for example, the first requested site in IE fails or if I do a ping to, it fails. I have to cause another DNS Lookup to take place to ANOTHER site and it will work. All subsequent requests are fine.

I'm pulling my hair out on this one. I tried specifying the DNS servers manually on the router. I even changed them around. I tried specifying the DNS servers on the PC (changed them from the router address). Nothing works.

Any ideas?
