Go to services.msc, then look for DNS Server. check if it is started, if its not, right click on the the DNS Server then click on start, if it doesnt start due to restriction. please contact ur administrator, if your the admin but u still cant start the DNS Server i suppose that there is a virus blocking ur DNS Server Service. try to scan it, or download and run "winsock utility" if it still doesnt work, i am sorry but you need to reinstall your OS

Does this advice worked for you?

I did not request, "OpenDNS" services that block


to remove the OpenDNS service all you need to do is change your DNS server addresses in your Network Settings which youll find it under the Control Panel in Windows. choose your network connection and go into the Properties and find TCP/IP properties.
Open DNS uses IP addresses such as 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220
if you see those in the IP settings, remove them. you can select for the configuration to set the DNS servers automatically. if your system doesnt let you view webpages when set to automatic. you can use a different set of IP addresses for DNS. i always recommend using Google's DNS servers because they are somewhat speedier and simple to remember ( 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4)

Tip on speeding up your Internet connection.


I have high speed and my Internet was sluggish at best for months. I tried everything including the following Resetting my cable modem, replacing my cable modem with a newer model. Resetting my Wi-Fi router, replacing my Wi-Fi router. Reinstalling my operating system. Updating my network drivers. Scanning for Malwere and viruses daily. I tried different browers including Firefox, Chrome and others. I updated Internet Explorer with all the latest patches.

I have determine that the DNS server was the issue. The DNS server is a translator, it allows us to just type in the website name like www.microsoft.com instead of remembering numbers like 216.239.51.99. I fix mine by using Open DNS instead of my internet provider DNS Server.

Here is how to fix it. Go to control panel, then click on your local area connection icon. Click on properties and then double click on TCP/IP Internet Protocol. Leave the top settings alone, which will still obtain the IP address automatically. Type in the Open DNS Preferred DNS server settings of 24.25.5.60. Type in the Open DNS Alternate DNS server settings of 24.25.5.61. Reboot your PC and enjoy the speed.

Open DNS is troubles me when important downloading it is block that sites pl.give me solution to delete or remove the Open DNS


No.1 : If you are on corporate/company LAN, there's nothing much you can do unless you are the system/network administrator. If you are then make the necessary changes in the software at the server level( where open dns and proxy is hosted for access). But beware of your corporate security policies.

No.2 If you are at home or if you have your own internet connection, uninstall or disable open dns and point your system/laptop direcltly to the DNS servers provided by your ISP

I cannot communicate with primary dns server 172.29.71.1 is there a way i can reset it automaticaly or manually


You cam try doing a power cycle. Turn off the modem, router (if you have one) and your computer. after 1 minute turn on modem first then router and computer. If you still can't communicate or ping the DNS it could be a firewall that is blocking it.

My laptop has problem getting access to either my webside provider or explorer through my BELKIN ADSL MODEM with wireless G router


Sometimes routers lock up. Try shutting down the router (unplug if there is no on/off), wait 30sec, then turn back on. See if that doesn't help.

Next try changing your DNS settings to something other then the ISP's settings. To change you need to get to the network properties, and change the TCP/IP settings. Best way is to click on START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL. NETWORK CONNECTIONS. Right click on LOCAL AREA NETWORK (if you are physically connected), and go to properties.

Once there, scroll down to INTERNET PROTOCAL (TCP/IP), highlight it, and click on PROPERTIES.

Here is where you can enter new DNS settings. I use 206.13.29.12, and 206.13.30.12 respectively. You can do a search for DNS servers on the internet and put one in there to see if it solves your issue.

Just a NOTE: Recently ISP's have been updating their systems and DNS servers due to a flaw in the DNS design which is world wide. If your issue of reaching some sites fails and is recent, it could be due to this update process.

I cant get onto internet explorer it says dns error can you help?


Check out your internet connection and its settings, whether it is dial up or broadband oriented.
then you have to know about your ip address of dns server in the network setting places.
you just ping the ip address of dns server following as...

go to start, then run and type "cmd", and it shows the command prompt. type as following format.

ping 10.10.10.5 and press enter key.. this is the sample ip address only. if it gets reply, your dns server is ok. you can use internet. suppose, it wont comes, ask your service provider or support for another or different ip address of dns to check it out.
