Acer Aspire - DNS problem

Acer Aspire One, Windows XP Home Edition. I can connect to my home network (either WiFi or cable) and get a correct DHCP/IP configuration but IE will not find any web sites using URL, works fine using IP. Looks like DNS not working, however other machines in my network work fine with same configuration. Tried "nslookup www.google.com" and correct IP returned, however "tracert www.google.com" does not work. Tried "ipconfig -a www.google.com" also does not work. No firewalls or anti-virus utilities are active.All drivers are loaded correctly.Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

How to change the server aol to my google chrome on start up


Dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) is a way to configure IP addresses and TCP/IP settings throughout your network.

The DHCP service is run on a machine with a static IP address so that the computers on the network can find it for automated configurations.

Setting the IP address on a Windows 2003 server is accomplished through the network configuration settings in Control Panel.

Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Control Panel." Double-click "Network Connections." In this section, double-click "LAN Connection."

This opens the configuration tool to set the IP address of the server.

Select "TCP/IP" from the list of configured network applications and click the "Properties" button. This opens a new configuration window.

Select "Use the following IP address" to set a static IP for the server.
Enter the IP address chosen for the server in the first textbox that is activated.

Enter the subnet mask and default gateway for the server.
The default gateway is usually the router on the local network or the DSL or cable modem on a small, home network.

Enter the DNS server address.
The DNS servers are separate servers on the network.

For small, home networks, the DNS server is provided by your service provider.

Click the "Ok" button to save the settings. Click "Ok" again at the general LAN properties window.

Renew settings on local computers. Computers that use the DHCP server for configuration need to be rebooted.

You can also use the DOS command prompt to renew settings.
The "ipconfig -renew" command refreshes the settings on client computers on the network.

or for home page browser

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options or
Click start control panel internet options you will see a home page box To Create Page Tabs type

each adress on its own line (type in google.com) or your preferred home page and browser
below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search Providers
Toolbar extensions and Accelerators you have

have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them


Click start type cmd press enter you will be in DOS mode
type in ipconfig press enter
you will see all of your internet connection details



Hope this helps

Can't connect to router interface 192.168.1.1


Took another look by fixing word wrapping in notepad.

It's missing DNS Servers. Check your NIC settings and make sure you don't have a DNS server manually set to another IP. Plus, you might try resetting the router to default in case there is a DNS modification there.

I'm not sure if this is the cause, but I couldn't hurt. It's part of trouble shooting.

Good Luck!

Network diagnostics = failed DNSServerSearchOrder


Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD and press ENTER
Type IPCONFIG /ALL and press ENTER.

Look for lines of output like:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 364.259.160.040
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 364.259.160.13, 364.259.160.15

especially the "DNS Servers" line.

Call the "Support Desk" of your Internet Service Provider, if that "DNS Servers" line is blank -- or even if it is non-blank -- ask the ISP what the values *SHOULD* be -- just in case your computer has been "hijacked" to point to "rogue" DNS-servers.

Wireless connection problem


When you say "IP and DNS settings are correct", can you define what "correct" is? IP and DNS settings change depending on the wireless network they're using, so one setting will not work for all networks. The most "correct" setting you can have is probably DHCP - which is called "Obtain IP address automatically" and the same for DNS. If your laptop has any statically assigned IP information, make a note of what they are, and then change it to DHCP and see if you have better luck. If you have statically assigned IP information, it will allow you to connect to the wireless network, but not provide internet access because your IP scheme and DNS settings are wrong. It sounds like the scenario you're describing.
