If you get the error all the time, goto your network card properties and in the space where you can enter a DNS address, just enter 22.214.171.124 and teh primary DNS and 126.96.36.199 as the secondary DNS. These are universal DNS addresses.
a DNS server stands for domain name service. The DNS server translatesnames from IP addresses. The internet sees IP addresses such as 188.8.131.52 but the DNS server provided by your ISP translates it for you into fixya.com. You should be able to aquire the DNS server information from your internet provider (ISP) hope this helps.
It sounds like you have a corrupted DNS cache or host file. I have seen this happen before and flushdns does not always fix the problem. These is a utility that I use in my shop all the time that should correct your issue. You can download it from my site at http://www.ccl-la.com/winsockxpfix.zip Just download and unzip the file and run it. It will reset your host file, reset DNS files and correct several other ip/dns issues. After running it will prompt you for a restart. When restarted you should be back online.
I would try to reset the router to factory default to do that unplug the router for 30 sec or at the back of the router, there should be a small hole where u can stick a paper clip. stick it in there and hold for 30 sec the hole should say reset.
The DNS failing is because of your Broadband provider. When you purchased their internet, they were supposed to supply you with a modem. If they arent helping you with this, they are scamming you of your money and you need to go with a new provider. The DNS has nothing to do with what you do or what you can do. (Nothing you will do will controll this except for contacting an internet service provider.)
