DNS .Resolve & .NET 2.0 Headache???

I can type an IP address and receive Internet domain name and my workstation
name however no other IPs of computers on our internal network will resolve
to a thier machine name only to the same IP that is entered. What's up
Microsoft????

I can say that before we switched over .NET 1.1 to 2.0 the
Dns.Resolve(ent ry); would find a name for any IP, LAN or WAN.

Q. Any ideas??????????

[This is new .NET 2.0 method that replaced the former .Resolve method]

private void LookupIP(string entry)
{
try
{
IPHostEntry IP = Dns.GetHostEntr y(entry);
txtBox2.Text = IP.HostName;
}
catch(Exception exception)
{

Make sure your network settings are correct, GetHostEntry does a DNS
lookup, so you have to make sure they are reachable from your machine, best
way to do this is by issuing a nslookup <ipaddress> command.
