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.

Find proxy server address


Changing TCP/IP settings Win 7 TCP/IP defines how your computer communicates with other computers.
To make it easier to manage TCP/IP settings, we recommend using automated Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). DHCP automatically assigns Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to the computers on your network, if your network supports it. If you use DHCP, then you don't have to change your TCP/IP settings if you move your computer to another location, and DHCP doesn't require you to manually configure TCP/IP settings, such as Domain Name System (DNS) and Windows Internet Name Service (WINS). To enable DHCP or change other TCP/IP settings, follow these steps:
  1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, typeadapter, and then, under Network and Sharing Center, click View network connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_48.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, click either Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6), and then click Properties. 25e7e385-9327-4f7d-aab0-afa5aaf952ba_49.jpgThe Network Connection Properties dialog box
  4. To specify IPv4 IP address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IP address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify an IP address, click Use the following IP address, and then, in the IP address, Subnet mask, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
  5. To specify IPv6 IP address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IPv6 address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify an IP address, click Use the following IPv6 address, and then, in the IPv6 address, Subnet prefix length, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
  6. To specify DNS server address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get a DNS server address automatically using DHCP, click Obtain DNS server address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify a DNS server address, click Use the following DNS server addresses, and then, in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server boxes, type the addresses of the primary and secondary DNS servers.

I want to get my youtube unblocked at work. do you know a site thats works?


This depends on how your IT dept has blocked access (there are many ways of blocking site/content/IP access). Try the below (I am assuming you are using Windows XP as your OS)
(all of these when you are at work, not sure if you are using a desktop or laptop)
1. Open command prompt and check ipconfig /all (note down the IP for your DNS servers; you should have at least 1 if not two. Make sure you note down the first IP)2. Go to network connections (from Control Panel), if you are using LAN (using an ethernet cable) then go to Local Area Connection properties or if you are using Wireless then go to Wireless Network Connection properties3. Under general tab, select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) & click on properties4. Under general tab, below you'll find an option 'use the below DNS server address' - select this option5. Under preffered DNS server add 4.2.2.26. Under Alternate DNS server add the IP address you noted in step #17. Restart your system and try using Youtube
Hope this helps. Sorry, if the steps were too detailed out.

I'm locking up in family feud or the game won't load. I have adobe flash player installed in my firefox. I've tried cleaning my registry , cleaning out my cache and nothing seems to help.


Is Frontier your internet service provider? If so, please see the following;

Currently, we are seeing issues reported by many users who have Frontier as their Internet Service Provider and are seeing the error below.

pic1-1.jpg


We are offering a voluntary workaround for users who are unable to access the game through Frontier's DNS servers. A suggested way to solve this issue is to use OpenDNS servers. This solution was reported to have worked for a user with this issue. Please note: We are merely suggesting this suggestion, as it has been passed to us, but do not take responsibility for failure of this solution. We would also recommend this only for users who consider themselves to be knowledgeable about computer networking.

We are also investigating further and hope to have a more simple solution in the future.



How to change Windows 7/Vista to use OpenDNS servers:

1. Open your control panel.

2. Open up Network and Internet and go to the Network and Sharing Center.
pic2.jpg 3. Click on Change adapter settings on the left hand panel.

pic3.jpg
4. This will bring up a list of adapters present on your computer. Most people will have a Local Area Connection while laptop users will add a Wireless Network Connection and possibly a Bluetooth Network Connection...go ahead and right click on Local Area Connection and click on Properties.

NOTE: These steps do not change if you are modifying the Wireless Network Connection instead
pic4.jpg



5. If prompted by UAC, click on Yes.
6. Highlight Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click on properties.


pic5.jpg 7. In the properties window you will see a few radio boxes with both of them saying Obtain an IP/DNS Address Automatically....we will leave the IP address alone and will change the Obtain DNS....to use the following:
In the Preferred DNS server boxes enter this sequence: 208.67.222.222

In the Alternate DNS server boxes enter this sequence: 208.67.220.220
pic6.jpg

8. Check the validate settings upon exit (Optional) check box, click OK, and then Close to finish. (See screenshot above)

9. Windows will check your settings (if you checked the option above) and you will be finished! Now start surfing to feel the effects of a quicker and more secure browsing experience!
How to change Windows XP DNS settings:
Sometimes you may want to override the default DNS (Domain Name Server) settings on your computer so you can specify which DNS server is used, or which IP address should be used for a particular domain. There are two ways to do this: Specify the DNS and map IP addresses.
(1) Specify the DNS to be Used To set your DNS, you need to find the Internet Protocol window.
For Users on a Dial-up Connection:

Go to My Computer>Dialup Networking.

Right-click your internet connection and select Properties.

A window will open - click the Server Types tab. Click TCP/IP Settings.
For All Other Users:

Go to Control Panel>Network Connections and select your local network.

Click Properties, then select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).

Click Properties.
You will see a window like the one below - this is the Internet Protocol window. Select "Use the following DNS server addresses" and enter the desired DNS server(s) in the space(s) provided.
pic7.jpg

Note: To add more DNS servers, click Advanced then the DNS tab.
(2) Map IP Addresses This method allows you to create settings for individual domains without altering your main DNS preferences. This is useful if you don't have access to a DNS or if you want to specify the location of a single domain without interfering with any of your other online activities.
Open the following file in a plain text editor such as Notepad:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
The file looks like the one below. At the end of the file (in this case, under the localhost entry), enter the IP and domain you wish to specify. When your browser attempts to access a domain it refers to this file first - if the domain is found here then the specified IP address will be used. If the domain is not found here, then the normal DNS server (as specified above) will be used.



pic8.jpg

(Note that for the XP one above, they can use the same OpenDNS servers
(208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220) as for the Windows 7 link above)

How to configure d-link switch


Hi there, there is no real configuration settings for switchs as they are generally considered "Unmanaged Devices" and have no managment interface, if your using this device to connect 2 or more computers, then you need to assign ip's on each computer statically..
the general procedure for this is as follows. in Windows XP, right click on My Network (might be called network neighborhood) , click propertys, it should pop up a window with a list of items, one of them should be "TCP/IP", click on that and click Properties, in the new window, click "Use The following ip address".
on Computer A, you want to use the following settings.
IP Address: 192.168.1.5 subnet mask : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1 (or the ip address of your router)
Click "Use the following DNS Server addresses"
Preferred DNS Server: 4.2.2.1 Alternate DNS Server : 4.2.2.2
click ok, and do the same procedure on the 2nd and 3rd computers, in the ip address box on computer 2 and 3, add 1 to the final number, so computer B would have an ip of 192.168.1.6 Computer 3 would have 192.168.1.7 , and so on.
