SOURCE: "Failed to lookup DNS" error with Aluratek wifi internet radio

Here's the useless response from Aluratek customer support:
"Failed to lookup DNS, the password is case sensitive, if you are using upper lower case letters you have to key in the correct case otherwise you won't be able to connect your radio. Thanks."
However, Aluratek advised another AIRMM01 owner to obtain a newer modem. I bought a new Actiontec GT724WGR Wireless DSL Modem and that resolved the problem with my AIRMM01F.

SOURCE: "Failed to lookup DNS" error with Aluratek wifi internet radio

This is an old question that didn't have a definitive answer, so I hope someone is able to make use of my resolution if they are googling this same problem.

I was having the same problem and spent hours trying to figure it out. Same as everyone else, it worked when wired, but when setup for wireless, "failed to lookup DNS" error. I updated to latest firmware and it did not help.

I created a ticket with Aluratek support and they got back to me pretty quickly. They said to use WEP with a 10 digit numeric password on the wireless router. I had been using 128-bit WEP with a 26 character password and when I tried it with 64-bit WEP and a very basic 10 digit password, it finally worked. However, when I went back and tried to change it to a stronger password, it stopped working again and had the same DNS error. Even if I changed back to my original 10 digit simple password, it wouldn't work. I was only able to get it to work if I disabled WEP altogether. Disabling security isn't an option for me, so I kept trying to find a way to get it to work. I wound up changing the SSID on my wireless router and assigning it the stronger password that I originally wanted to use and it worked. Somewhere on the radio the old SSID is caching some setting that was preventing it from working.

Now my only problem is with the range of the wireless - if I go anywhere outside of the room where the wireless router is, the radio can't find it. I've gone back to Aluratek support and will see if they have an answer for this one.

Anyways, hope this helps someone. Once it is working, this radio is a good product.

I keep trying to hook to my wifi and it wants to change my IP address continuously. I had to change the settings to "static" and type in my IP address. Unit connects initially and then reverts to an


Keep the router to supply IP address using dhcp mode. Increase the lease time to 24 hours and don't forget to bind your device mac address with the dhcp IP in the router. This way it will always get the same ip from the router.

I reset my modem and now i cant get my wifi back on


If your modem pulled a new or different ip address and you did not reset your router it could be trying to use the old IP address and there would be a conflict. IP addresses usually have a lease of 24 hours, S if your IP was refreshed at noon and you reset your mdem and for sopme reason it obtained a new ip address the router would not be able to connect until noon the following day when it tried to refresh. Rebooting the router should cause it to sync back up with the modem and pull the correct IP address. You may need to log into your router and manually release and renew the IP address even after rebooting your router, I have seen a few routers that would still not pull the new address unless this was done.
My preferred method is to unplug power from the router, then reboot the modem. Only after the modem is synced back up do I plug power back into the router, so far this has seemed to work the best.

Is there any way I can use my tangent quattro with a wireless modem


You will need the ip address of your tangent quattro for that.
then, connect it with your your wireless modem, which is also connected to your pc or laptop.
then enter the ip address of the quattro in your web browser in the laptop.
you will get some settings there.
feed in the dns, gateway and other details for the modem and this should get your quattro working with the wifi.

I try to make my radio connect to the internet and when i say that i have a wireless connection and i type in my wireless passkey it accepts it but when it tries to connect it says it is unable to get IP.


I had this problem. Let me give some background. I was listening to my radio, to an internet radio station. There was a power surge/blip - a big thump. My radio is in the bedroom and the computer and router are in the living room. The power surge didn't even restart the computer or router, but the radio stopped playing the streaming station. I restarted the radio and it would not get an ip. I restarted the computer, router, and also my netbook that connects wirelessly. The netbook connected to the router and got an ip using the existing WEP key. I reset the radio and re-entered the WEP key into the radio setup and it still would not get an ip. I unplugged the radio and let it sit for a while hoping it would reset. Started the radio back up, entered the WEP key and still it did not get an ip. I went into my router software thru the computer and it actually showed the radio as an unassigned guest (or some weird nomenclature), so I knew the radio was connecting to the router it just wasn't getting an ip. So I went into the router manual setup function and re-entered the WEP key (the same key that I have been using). Before I exited the router maintenance program I looked at status and it had already assigned an ip to the radio. So somehow the power surge corrupted the WEP key data in the router. I went back into the bedroom and hit the OK button on the radio to "request an ip" and it connected immediately. So I am sorry for the long answer, but this may help someone in the same situation. I know in the future that if I run into this type of problem, that I will first re-enter the WEP key thru the manual setup in the router first!!! Thanks.

IPod touch Wifi problem. I got a new iPod touch 4g and my dad got new pocket wifi so I tried to connect my iPod to the internet and it would work for about five minutes but then it would disconnect...


hi this sounds like the pocket wifi firewall or push is stopping you from connecting, it will show connection when the password is put in correctly, but unless your either ip, or mac address is registered with the unit it will not let you connect to the net, you will have to see if there is a start ip and an end ip address in the wifi unit, as this might have restrictions to ip address numbers..for example..wifi ip start address might be 192.168.0.1 and wifi end address might be 192.168.0.4 where as your ipod might have an ip address of 192.168.0.7 ( just an example ) so even though the password is ok, it will let you connect for that few seconds, as it has verified the password and is correct, but the ip handling has not allowed you access and the firewall then steps in and blocks you.... hope this helps

Can't get my Sylvania 7" netbook to connect to internet using my Linskys WiFi. think I may not have correct IP Address or Server names.


If you think you may have an incorrect ip address, that probably means you changed it by setting a static address. Most systems (with the exception of business systems using domains), use auto ip addressing. Logging on to most wifi hotspots and most home wireless routers requires auto ip addressing. To set yours to auto (this is with XP, I think Vista and Windows 7 is similiar, you just find the controls in slightly different places) go to Control Panel, then to network connections, then right click on the 1394 connection and select properties. In the new pop-up box, if it is not already selected, select tcp/ip and then click properties. (You can also double click the tcp/ip item). In the new pop-up box, make sure both "obtain ip address automatically" and "obtain dns server automatically" are both selected by using the radio buttons. Click Ok on both pop-up boxes to close. While you're in the area, the control panel should still be open. Double click "internet options." Then click on the connections tab, and towards the bottom, click on the lan button. On the new pop-up box, uncheck automatically detect settings. This usually makes you wired connection faster.
