Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

1 Answer

I believe I am having DNS issues that I cannot resolve with a simple ipconfig /flushdns, I tried going into services.msc and restarting the DNS client as well. The problem is, I'm connected to my wireless router with my Asus EEE Top, and it is gathering all the information, however I still cannot connect to the internet. My desktop is connected via ethernet and is connecting just fine. One thing I noticed is, when I do an ipconfig /all my desktop has a different DNS than the Top. Is that a problem? Any help will be much appreciated!

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 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.

Not getting net work, dns failed

In a typical home network DNS(domain name service) is provided via your ISP(internet service provider). If you are having an issue with DNS on more than one or all devices connected to your router, unplug the power from both the modem and router for at least 30 seconds. plug the modem power back in and wait about a minute or until the lights are all back on (the activity or link light should flicker). Now plug the router back in and wait for it to sync up to the modem. Test your devices to see if they are working properly now. If they are not try repeating the steps again but wait at least 5 minutes with them both unplugged this should allow for a new dynamic IP to be assigned by your ISP and should hopefully resolve the issue. Some other steps you can try on a given computer are to flush your computer's dns cache by opening a command prompt and typing without quotes "ipconfig /flushdns" this will require elevated rights on Vista and 7. You can also try releasing your DHCP lease by typing "ipconfig /renew" or "ipconfig /release' then "ipconfig /renew" For elevated rights Click the Window Button, All Programs, Accessories, Right Click Command Prompt and click Run As Administrator

Smc router says limited connectivity and won't work.


I experienced the same issue before with my route,try doing these steps im sure this will work somehow. (flush the DNS cache)

How to do it:

If you are using Windows 2000/XP operating sysytem

-Fire up a Command Prompt (Start Menu>Accessories) and execute the command
ipconfig -flushdns

if you get 'could not flush dns' or message saying dns resolver cache could not be flushed.

If it is XP SP2 then go to Start > Run > CMD > type netsh winsock reset > enter, restart as prompted, if still no connection then go to Start, Control Panel (Network and Internet Connections then Network Connections -or- straight to Network Connections, double click on the Local Area Connection in use (usually the one that says Connected) and pick Support. Try the Repair button after Winsock fix. Use that winsock fix only if you are using SP2.

go to "start, control panel, administration tools,services,then look for DNS Client, and make sure it's started, and set to manual.

Hello, I have a problem with my internet. Every single time i go to the game called city vill, it's on facebook and it gives me error 101

Try deleting the cookies from your browser and flushing your DNS. if you are on windows open a command prompt and type : ipconfig/flushdns

after doing both of those restart your PC and try again.

Error 101 usually is a DNS error, so your PC is having issues talking to that specific website.

No ip adress

First, at the command prompt type ipconfig /flushdns. This will purge the dns cache, then type ipconfig /registerdns. This will refresh your DHCP lease and re-register any DNS names.

After trying the ipconfig /registerdns command, wait for about 15 minutes, then check your status and see it your issue is resolved.

If not, try reinstalling your NIC drivers.
Let us know if you need further clarification.
