    browsing the intra or intranet does not work nor printer to a named printer, although if I enter the IP address of the web server or printer it works just fine. I know it sounds like DNS is not working at all in the network or that this one mac has the wrong DNS server entries BUT this is not the case. If I open a terminal and do an nslookup to google or any other web site I get the IP addresses just fine, it works also with intranet addresses.

    I really don't know what I am missing here

    Nope, nothing there, just normal configuration info, this looks more like a strange bug or something blocking DNS at the graphic level.
