This is OK too.

I can pinpoint the time when the problems started. It seems that a
number of things went out of sync, and I'm still trying to figure out which.

A while ago we had a power dip at work that killed the default DHCP
server. A temporary DHCP was quickly set up. As soon as the temporary
server started working, I could not obtain the name server address anymore.

The default DHCP server has since been restored, but the problem
remained. My admin says that my computer keeps requesting an IP number
from the temporary DHCP server, which is for some reason still online.
