Well now I am confused. I thought you were trying to resolve
ws2.harrisdirect.com no we1.client2.attbi.com.
And the reason I was thinking your resolv.conf was not correct is that
normally 192.168 network addresses (which are part of the private
address space specified in RFC 1918) are used on your LAN segment not on
DNS servers owned by ISPs.
On my network I have my laptop get its network information via DHCP.
This is pulled from a WRT54G linksys router. It supplies not only the
IP address, default gateway, subnet mask, but the DNS information as
well. If you have a router on you network connecting you to the cable
modem check its configuration.
I still think your nameserver information is incorrect and that is what
is causing the problem.
