Hi,

DNS are ISP specific. They are normally provided by the network/company that gives you Internet access. The DNS then would be different from ISP to ISP, location to location.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My comp.says network error,thomson tg585v8,i cant access my comp.


Check your network settings
Start, control panel, networking and sharing center. Click on your connection, properties. Click on TCP/IPv4 and TCP/IPv6 and click on properties. Make sure the settings say to obtain IP address automatically and also for DNS, then reboot the modem and computer.

You did not specify if you are using a router.

Got Motorola SB5101u cable modem get ip address and works with xp/pro, but can't get vista computer to get IP address even though have configured for automatic ip / dns. Tried everything I could think of


Obviously make sure its set to automatic IP/dns. If thats not working you need to do this

Click on Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click on command prompt and hit run as administrator.

In Dos prompts type these commands in EXACTLY AS WRITTEN.

netsh i i r r
netsh firewall reset
netsh winsock reset

Also, if you have anti virus like norton or trend micro or mcafee or webroot, you *NEED* to disable their firewalls and possible the entire program.

Some isp's for some reason make it impossible for Vista machines to pull ip addresses dynamically because of a flaw in windows vista. If this continues, i would contact your ISP and request a motorola surfboard 900 series modem, or a cable modem that is in route mode (NOT bridged, as bridged modems will pull a public ip address)

I was using bsnl provided nokia modem. i had to reload windows xp since my pc was not working.but now i am not able to connect to net. ''error 169. desitnation not reacheable''. plez solve this


r u using lan connection or usb..need to know..??
assuming that u r using lan connection, u know the primary n secondary dns provided by bsnl (if so), & hv knowledge abt PPPoE connection..if not u gotta clarify more....!!

however, see if ur lan settings are ok n there is no conflict..open Control Panel->Network Connection->right click on Local Area Connection->click Properties->choose Internet Protocol TCP/IP from item menu->click on the Properties submit button therein->manually configure it by clicking on the radio button as 'Use the following IP address'->IP Address:192.168.1.2; Subnet Mask:255.255.255.0; Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1->put the DNS if u hv->nw press OK->OK..
make a through system scan with ur licensed, 'updated' antivirus (i prefer AVG/Kaspersy) and Microsoft Malicious Software removal Tool..
..always better to hv ur System Admin/Vendors supervision....

Settings saved do not match requirements on this computer


Go into network connections on the laptop and select the Wireless Network. Go into properties and find the TCP/IP settings and ensure that the IP address setting is set to Automatic and the DNS settings also. If you have wireless security set on the router you will have to set that up on the laptop as well.

From PC to Laptop


Reboot the modem (unplug power, replug) each time you switch from one to the other. Make sure the "Local Area Connection" is enabled on the laptop and the Yellow activity light on the bottom should blink steadily.
