Question about Computers & Internet
What does it man when i try to connect t th internet and it say that it cannot communicate with the dns server?
It means that either your computer or router is not getting a DNS address from your Internet provider. DNS is essentially the 411 service for the internet. You type in www.hotmail.com and your computer ask the router for the number, if it doesn't know it asks a computer at you internet provider and so on.
If the settin for the address for dns is missing either on your laptop or on your router it will not be able to find the address and like trying to make a phone call without a number you'll never get through.
Easiest solution is to call your internet providr and tell them that exact error message, then tell them you want to manually input their DNS server address(s) into your computer.
They will need to know what version of windows you're on then they can tell you where to go and what address to punch in.
Hope this helps FixYa,
