What is your resolv.conf configuration file on your desktop? Is your desktop 
using the router as a DNS resolver?  Your router might use the two DNS server 
IP addresses in a round-robin and not always trying the primary first.

Why don't you set only one DNS server address?

You can always set up your own resolving DNS server on the desktop machine and 
forget about the tiscali resolvers...

Blade hails you...
