can you tell more about your NW setup ,

like how are the systems in your LAN going to internet... are they going via a Proxy server or getting directly NATted on a Firewall or router ?

all the systems browse internet via proxy server which is on the same vlan as Apple MAC and Windows XP machines. The default gateway for all the machines is the ip address of proxy server. DNS is also on the same subnet. once in a week or so the Apple MAC cannot browse internet but still ping gateway and DNS.
