SOURCE: Difference between DNS and WINS

WINS is Windows Internet Naming Service, a system that determines the IP address associated with a particular network computer. This is called name resolution. WINS supports network client and server computers running Windowsand can provide name resolution for other computers with specialarrangements. Determining the IP address for a computer is a complexprocess when DHCPservers assign IP addresses dynamically. For example, it is possiblefor DHCP to assign a different IP address to a client each time themachine logs on to the network.

__________________________________________________

DNS, a.k.a Domain Name System is a database system thattranslates a computer's fully qualified domain name into anIP address.Networked computers use IP addresses to locate and connect to eachother, but IP addresses can be difficult for people to remember. Forexample, on the web, it's much easier to remember the domain namewww.amazon.com than it is to remember its correspondingIP address (207.171.166.48). DNS allows you to connect to anothernetworked computer or remote service by using its user-friendly domainname rather than its numerical IP address. Conversely, Reverse DNS(rDNS) translates an IP address into a domain name.

Cannot get Netflix on. can only see some ad about Alexa. How do I get to watch my shows again.


I suspect that the DNS settings on your computer might have been changed by an advertising program (like a browser toolbar that you might have accidentally installed)?

You can check - and also change - the DNS settings on Windows, using a free program like this one:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/quick_set_dns.html

However, I do not know what your original settings might have been.
If you don't know where to find that information (probably through your Internet Service Provider), you could try using Google's free DNS service:

The Google Public DNS IP addresses (IPv4) are as follows:
  • 8.8.8.8
  • 8.8.4.4

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.

I CANT ACCESS A FEW SPECIFIC SITES.


Hi Pauline,

Try different using a different DNS address. OpenDNS provides free, fast servers that are used by millions. Here's how to do it with and without a router in your set up:

WITHOUT A ROUTER:

Mac OS X

  1. Go to System Preferences.
  2. Click on Network.
  3. Select the first connection in your list and click Advanced.
  4. Select the DNS tab and add 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 to the list of DNS servers.
  5. Click OK

Windows 7

  1. Click the Start Orb, then select Control Panel.
  2. Click on Network and Sharing Center.
  3. Click on your primary connection or Local Area Connection under Active Networks.
  4. Click the Properties button.
    Windows 7 may prompt you for permission to make network setting changes.
  5. Highlight 'Internet Protocol Version 4' and click Properties.
  6. Click the radio button 'Use the following DNS server addresses:' and type 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server fields.
  7. Click OK button, then the Close button, then Close again. Finally, close the Network and Sharing Center window.
    At this point, we highly suggest that you flush your DNS resolver cache and web browser caches to ensure that your new configuration settings take effect.

Windows XP

  1. Select Control Panel from the Start menu.
  2. Click Network Connections from the Control Panel choices.
  3. Choose your connection from the Network Connections window.
    If you have more than one, choose your default/current connection.
  4. Click Properties button.
  5. Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties.
  6. Click the radio button Use the following DNS server addresses and type 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server fields.
  7. Click OK

Windows Vista

  1. Click the Start Orb, then select Control Panel.
  2. Click on View network status and tasks.
  3. Click on View status.
  4. Click the Properties button.
  5. Vista may ask for your permission to make changes. If so, click the Continue button.
  6. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), then click the Properties button.
  7. Click the radio button "Use the following DNS server addresses:" and type in OpenDNS addresses, 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220, in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server fields.
  8. Click the OK button, then the Close button, and the Close button again. Close the Network and Sharing Center window.

WITH A ROUTER:

Generic Router

  1. Open the preferences for your router. Often, the preferences are set in your web browser, via a URL with numbers (example: http://192.168.0.1). You may need a password.
    If you're like us, and you set the router password long ago and cannot remember it now, you can often reset the password to the manufacturer default by pressing a button on the router itself.
    Or preferences may be set via specific application for your router, which you installed on your computer when you added the router.
  2. Find the DNS server settings.
    Scan for the letters DNS next to a field which allows two or three sets of numbers, each broken into four groups of one to three numbers.
  3. Put in the OpenDNS server addresses, 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220, as your DNS server settings and save/apply.

Linksys Router

  1. Visit the router's IP address in a new browser window.
    http://192.168.1.1 is the default Linksys router IP address.
  2. Enter the Network password.
    The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. Skip user name and type the router's password (admin is the default password, if you haven't changed it) and click the OK button.
  3. Type in OpenDNS addresses, 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220, in Static DNS 1 and Static DNS 2 fields.
  4. Click Save Settings button.

Netgear Router

  1. Type the router's setup URL (http://www.routerlogin.net, http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1) into a web browser address bar.
    http://192.168.1.1 is the default Netgear router IP address.
  2. Enter the password.
  3. Type in OpenDNS addresses, 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220, in Primary DNS and Secondary DNS fields.
  4. Click Apply button.
  5. Wait for the settings to be updated.

D-Link Router

  1. Visit the router's IP address (http://192.168.0.1) in a new browser window.
    If you are attempting to configure a D-Link router, take note of your computer's Default Gateway IP address. The Default Gateway is the IP address of the D-Link router. By default, it should be 192.168.0.1. Most D-Link devices use the 192.168.0.X range.
  2. Enter the router password.
    Note: if you have not changed the original settings, the default username is admin and the password is blank (nothing).
  3. Click on the Manual Internet Connection Setup button at the bottom.
  4. Enter the OpenDNS addresses, 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220, in Primary DNS Server and Secondary DNS Server fields.
  5. Click Save Settings button at the top.

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.

Can not hook up to internet. error # 52130


Sorry to hear your having issues with your wii's internet. Error code 52130 means your DNS is not set up correctly. You can manually add the DNS servers by these instructions from Nintendo:

"Access the Wii system settings (how to), and use the right arrow twice and select "Internet." Select "Connection Settings," and choose the connection file (1, 2, or 3) that are you are currently using. Select "Change settings" and click the right arrow 3 times to reach "Auto-Obtain DNS." Select "No," and choose "Advanced Settings." Click into the "Primary DNS" field and enter: 8.8.8.8 Click into the "Secondary DNS" field and enter: 8.8.4.4"
This updates your DNS with google's DNS servers.

Problem with the Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console PS3 says DNS error (80710102) when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection


Try changing your DNS settings on the PS3 or on the router
Changing the DNS on your router: Go to 192.168.1.1 Default password is: admin Static DNS1: 208.67.222.222 Static DNS2: 208.67.220.220
Those DNS setting are from OpenDNS
After doing this, reconnect your PS3 to the router and set it to Automatically adjust the settings. Once you have reconnected, check if you are still having the DNS problem.
If you are still experiencing the problem, try changing the DNS directly from the PS3 Go to Internet Connection Settings and set everything to Auto except DNS When asked if you should set the DNS automatically, choose "Manual" Input the same DNS settings: Static DNS1: 208.67.222.222 Static DNS2: 208.67.220.220

How to fix the dns error


You will have to go to the network settings and manualy change the DNS address to your ISP DNS address. If you dont know your ISP DNS address then I would recommend you to call them or use 4.2.2.2 and 4.2.2.3 which are Verzions DNS address. Using your ISP DNS may be faster.
