Hi Kai
I replaced the forwarder (on my cheepo router) with google 
at and everything sprang to life. I've added my actual isp's 
server too.

Everything seems solid again now but could you have a quick look at this 
smb.conf. The addition of my isp's forwarder hasn't made any difference. 
Does the order matter? Can you even have more than one forwarder?

     server role = domain controller
     workgroup = MARINA
     realm =
     netbios name = HH3
     passdb backend = samba4
     server services = smb, rpc, nbt, wrepl, ldap, cldap, kdc, drepl, 
winbind, ntp_signd, kcc, dnsupdate, dns
         allow dns updates = True
         dns forwarder =
         dns forwarder =
         dns recursive queries = yes
     nsupdate command = samba_dnsupdate
     interfaces = eth1
