Contact CHARTER, and ask for "Technical Support".
They can walk you through the process.

Or, switch to a different ISP.

There is a pinhole in the back of the router that lets you reset EVERYTHING. The router does not have proxy settings enabled by default. If you reset it, you have to change all the security settings and such back to what you had. Also you have to be connected to it with a hardware in order to change anything in the settings.

How do I disable the DNS Proxy setting on my router?


SInce you have a Cisco Router you will have to go to your web browser and type the following URL 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 and enter the username and password. The default user should be admin with a blank password on most Ciscos. Once in look for the settings and config menu and from there you can disable the DNS proxy. If you tell me which model you have I can give you more precise instructions.

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.

Cannot access website


Why can't I view some websites?
Applies to Windows 7
If you can access some websites but not all of them, here are some possible causes:
  • Your browser could be attempting to connect through a proxy server. If so, try connecting with the proxy server turned off.
  • Your browser connection settings could be incorrect. To change connection settings, follow these steps:
    1. Open Internet Options by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, and then clicking Internet Options.
    2. Click the Connections tab.

  • Your router could be attempting to proxy DNS requests and failing. Refer to the documentation that came with your router for instructions on disabling DNS proxying.
  • Parental Controls, Family Safety, or some other parental control software could be blocking access to certain websites.

How to open nat settings


Log into your router and write down the DNS servers that the router is using. Statically set the DNS servers on your network adapter to the IP's listed on the router.

This way the router will continue to provide you your IP address and you will use the ISP DNS servers directly, rather than through the DNS proxy of the router.

Hello,
In command prompt (with admin privleges)
Try to ping a domain name. For example:

ping youtube.com

Does it list an IP address? Do you get reply's? If you get replys then the internet on your son's laptop should be working. Try and make sure there are no proxies setup. Its a brand new laptop so there shouldn't be but check anyways.

In Internet Explorer goto tools, internet options, connections tab, lan settings button. Make sure the box use a proxy server for your LAN is unchecked.

If you don't get an ip address or reply's it would most likely signify that your DNS settings are incorrect. Verify the correct DNS settings by typing in 'ipconfig /all' in command prompt. It will show what your DNS ip address is set to. Make sure the settings are the same on the other laptop.

If they mismatch then you may have some settings incorrect in your wireless router, or the laptop itself, or both.

The ideal solution in that case is to resolve the dns issue on the wireless router, but for a quick solution, you can set the router to be the DNS host on the laptop. The process for doing so is OS specific. A quick google search should lead in the right direction.

If further problems persist, it may be a problem with the OS itself, or the hosts file.

Good Luck

Trying to get internet radio on my wireless sound system.


Start your PC; press START - RUN and in the box, type CMD and then press enter. A Window will open. Type here IPCONFIG /ALL and then press enter. You will see then some numbers including DNS Servers and Default Gateway (usually they are one and the same if you are using a router) PROXY set to NO. Should work then. Failing this, navigate using your web browser to http://www.kitz.co.uk/isp/dns.htm where you will find a list of all DNS servers - scroll down to BT and choose some from that list.

Internet connection failed but IP address obtained.


Hello,

Check to make sure that your router has gotten an IP Address from your ISP. Because you PS3 is telling you that it has an IP from your router. This means that the Router to PS3 connection has layer 3 connectivity, but what about from your router to your ISP? check that in the router by logging into the router's web page and going to the status page it should have your information from your ISP if it does not make sure that the main page is set to the proper settings either get IP automatically (Cable Modem) or Get PPPOE (DSL) connection (Make sure that your password information is correct to).

Now after checking these items make sure that you set the router up as the DNS for your network buy setting this on the status page then in your PS3 (set the DNS setting to point to your router, and set your router up as a caching DNS server).
Then power cycle the router after saving everything, and power cycle your PS3 after setting everything. This should clear up your problem.

Thank you,
