Problems with DNS
I've been running through a few issues on a test server i've setup using the perfect debian setup. Its been sitting around for a month or so, and isn't not in use for another month.
Basically service drops every now and again.. and i'm pretty sure its DNS related. Currently I cannot ping any ip or name outside of our local network. If I try and ping a name I do not get any response. If I ping an ip address I get the same result. However, on the reverse side of things, web services running on the server are accessible.
I have been attempting to fix up an issue where all network services go down on the machine (web services, mail, etc) and this is probably related. I'm new to all of this so I may have configured things the wrong way.
Cheers for any help.
this is my /sbin/route
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
126.96.36.199 * 255.255.255.192 U 0 0 0 eth1
default 188.8.131.52 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth1
Now this is a bit confusing - because technically 184.108.40.206 doesn't exist.. And i'm not sure how it got into the route table.

When I attempt to restart networking:

When I check the hostname:
