From the network in our office, some websites are not getting resolved to their proper IP addresses. I guess it is a problem with our DNS server because, when I changed it to Google's public DNS, I was able to access all the websites. What is the solution?

Sounds like you have created the a-records/domain on your internal DNS servers. Try doing start -> run -> nslookup
Do all DNS servers resolve the website to the same IP address? Check your hosts file. Are you using correct DNS forwarders or Root servers? Properties on the DNS servers...
You may want to look at changing the name server for your network (e.g. at the router). I see this issue regularly with the DNS servers of a certain ISP with a name that rhymes with Vindspream. ;-)
