I don't quite understand your question.  See below for the network topology:

ISP (host WinGate DNS, only proxy and socks connections allowed out)
 |
 | Wireless connection to my gateway
 |
Server (My gateway, running bind9 for internet domain and DNS caching, Free=
BSD=20
7.1p2)
  > PCI D-Link GPlus wireless card for link to ISP
  > PCI rl0 link to switch
 |
 | Switch
 |
My desktop (Client, FreeBSD 7.1p2, acts as bridge for laptop)
  > PCI dc0 link to switch
  > Built-in nfe0 link to laptop
 |
My laptop (Client, FreeBSD 8.0)
  > Built-in bge0 link to desktop

All the FreeBSD systems (server, desktop and laptop) experience the DNS=20
problem. =20

Other than the ISP's nameserver and my servers nameserver (which works fine=
=20
for its master domain) no. =20

Does this help?
