Re: dns problem

You should be able to find the DNS numbers in the routers system controls. If you don't know how to do that I need to know what kind and model of router you have, Just get back to me with the information and I can find out and let you know.. Thanks Happy Holidays bear001

Can't connect to router interface

Took another look by fixing word wrapping in notepad.

It's missing DNS Servers. Check your NIC settings and make sure you don't have a DNS server manually set to another IP. Plus, you might try resetting the router to default in case there is a DNS modification there.

I'm not sure if this is the cause, but I couldn't hurt. It's part of trouble shooting.

Good Luck!

Dns servers

DNS servers are the Domain Name Servers which convert the web addresses to the IP addresses. They are specific to your Internet Service Providers or ISP. You need to contact them to find out the primary and secondary DNS servers.

I cant get my wired linksys router to get online and everything eles is lighting up fine how can i fix this


1. first have you tried with the ISP if you need any Proxy settings
2. also check with the ISP if you need any specific DNS server settings
3. if the above two are given or not required but the router still does not give out connections then try this
instead of connecting the cable from the Modem to the slot named INTERNET try connecting it in one of the out going slots (numbered 1,2,3,4) and now connect the other systems as usual.

Dns problems

The DNS addresses are generally provided by your internet service provider (ISP) for your use. Can you identify your internet service providers web site link or his name and possibly your location in terms of city and state? WIth that information I should be able to access his support site and find the DNS addresses for you.
