Are you sure your cable company is letting you keep a static name? My dhclient picks up that the name changes along with the IP, if you have the new attbi.com setup. The name of you machine becomes the same as the IP, exmaple:

you get 204.123.234.45 as the IP - your machine name will be changed to 204-123-234-45.client.attbi.com. That may be why your address doenst resolve right - becasue when its rever DNS checked, it comes back with something different from what you think you are in the conf file.

I have no idea how to ifx this - AT&T is being quite stupid about this - they shoudl have at least kept the fixed hostnames that @home let us have.
