A "power cycle" will usually fix this issue. Remove power cable from your modem and your router. Allow them both to be unplugged for at least 5 minutes, then plug both of them back in. Allow a few minutes for both of the devices to reboot and allow your PC or device to acquire internet access again and establish an IP address and you should be good to go. Patience is necessary, if you skip steps it can get frustrating. If you still have the problem, you may have a hardware problem with your router and may need a new one, a modem or other hardware problem with your PC, and it could be a problem with your ISP.

What is DNS setup?


Domain Name System (DNS) is used in Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) networks, such as the Internet, to locate computers and services through user-friendly names. When a user enters a DNS name in an application, DNS can resolve the name to other information associated with the name, such as an IP address. If your network is homogeneous (all hosts use the same operating system), and it uses a name resolution method other than DNS, you can continue to use that method without needing DNS. If your network is heterogeneous (the hosts use different operating systems), or it connects to the Internet, you will want to deploy DNS as the Internet consists of protocols that require DNS.

Tip

How to change your DNS (Domain Name Server) on your Windows computer. Faster...


Hi Thanks for looking.

Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) provide you with Domain Name Server which translates website names to language that computer can understand which is an IP address of the website. Faster the response from DNS the faster your website will load.

In this tip I will explain how to change your Domain Name Server (DNS) in order to speed up your web browsing.

Go to

Start--->Control Panel--->Network Connections
Please note that you may need to switch to "Classic view of Control Panel in order to see default view.

Right click on network connection that you are currently using and choose "Properties"From the list in box choose "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click "Properties" below. You will be shown a window with two tabs and in General Tab you will have options to change your IP address (we don't want to touch this)and option to set DNS manually.
Click on " Use the following DNS address"Now you can change your DNS to whatever you like. I recommend "Open DNS" which is faster then most of default DNS's.
Ok to change your DNS to "Open DNS you need to type 208.67.222.222 in preferred DNS box and 208.67.220.220 in Alternate DNS box.Click OK and then OK again.


Bravo! You just changed your DNS.

Dns error


DNS stands for Domain Name Service, and it helps in accessing various websites on the Internet. An error regarding the DNS for any particular website usually implies the lack of an active Internet connection. The purpose of DNS is to simply translate the address that a user types on the web browser from the human language into the computer language.

DNS is used to resolve names to numerical IP addresses, which is needed to route traffic onto the Internet. Whenever a URL is entered into the browser, the beginning part is the website's domain name.

One Website Not Working: try contacting other sites on the Internet to see if the DNS error is particular to one website. If only one site is not working, the problem rests with the one website.

Computer Not Connected: another item to check when a DNS error shows up is to see if the computer is on the local network. Check to see if the home or office router can be reached from the computer. If not, the DNS error is from the computer not being able to connect to the local office or home network.

Internet Connection Down: if no websites are working, it might be because the Internet connection is down due to a faulty cable/DNS modem or the ISP is down. Power off and on the modem. If the DNS errors still persist, contact the ISP.

DNS Errors: in the vast majority of cases, DNS errors have nothing to do with DNS. DNS errors are usually one of the first symptoms of internet or wireless connectivity issues.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Internet connection dropping out


Hi powergirl_18

The problem is that your router is trying to connect to the ISP's DNS IP and it's not always connecting. This is a common problem (especially with Cable subsribers Road Runner) You will need to log into your router and go to the Basic Setting and manually put in a DNS number that will work. You should contact your ISP to obtain the IP that will work. If not you can try 209.15.151.2. That's a dedicated DNS, and sometimes it works, and sometimes not. You really need to get a good one from your ISP.

Good Luck

Well, i tryed even typing i my wired connection dns code like 5 times i trye every solutuon on this damn help site adn nothing worked help me1


DNS is a internet problem, try restarting your internet, there is nothing to type in 5 times. If problem continues contact your internet provider.

Chances are you have a bad internet signals through your cables, and a slight spike in your cable will drop you out of your net play.

the DNS should be informed by your internet service, but most times the system recognises the DNS by looking for it on the router .

it's happening to you because the IP is got from the router (and it'll be always correct), but the DNS ,that allows you to connect to your internet service must not be correct .

try using the default automatic settings when asked, the ps3 system will try to find the DNS and everything else necessary for your internet connection .
