Someone want to tell me how this can happen?

This is on my W2K laptop, which is connected to the mail server via WLAN.
mail.azadian.ch is DNS forwarded to mail server's internal address of
192.168.3.10 by m0n0wall-1.2. When the laptop comes up, it runs correctly
for a while, meaning that both nslookup and ping use the internal address.
Then it can't find the mail server, and I have the state shown above. It
is perhaps important to note that my ADSL is going up and down like a yo-yo
these days, due to either a bad modem or a bad line; I don't know which yet.
