yeah - dns issues

from your output on your Windows computer, you stated that it used...

>>         DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.1.0.100
>>                                             10.1.0.5

and thus those same addresses ***should*** work (perhaps invert them and
put 10.1.0.5 on top)

so contents of /etc/resolv.conf should be...

search cdkkt.com
nameserver 10.1.0.5
nameserver 10.1.0.100

changes should take effect immediately (what kind of computer/devices is
10.1.0.5 ? I know your gateway device is 10.1.0.200 so perhaps you can
use that for DNS
