DNS is an acronym for Domain Name System but what your console is looking for is a connection to the Internet. In order to accomplish this it needs either an Ethernet cable connection or a Wi-FI (wireless) connection. In order to really answer your question though I will need more information.

Need to set up wireless router


you have two ways:-

  1. DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol)
  2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.
1.DHCP:-
In DHCP method you dont have to enter any settings on the wireless adapter. The wireless network which you are connecting will automatically assign an IP Address to you. But to use DHCP it must be supported by your wireless network.

2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.

This method is mostly used over wireless Connection in small networks connecting 2-200 computers. In this method you have to obtain the following information from your connection provider.
  • IP address (Its format is "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx")
  • Default gateway address (very important)
  • Primary and secondary DNS (If not given then you can use "8.8.8.8" as primary DNS and "8.8.4.4" as Secondary DNS...thats free DNS service from google and its very fast)
  • Subnet Mask (not needed mostly...automatically generated)

I AM SIGNING UP 4 XBOX LIVE AND MY INTERNET CONNECTION FAILED IN RESULT OF AN INCORRECT SECONDARY DNS SERVER IM WONDERING WHERE DO U GO 2 FIND THAT


Have you tried dns settings in automatic? I take it from your post that you have the primary dns server, my primary and my secondary has only one number difference,
primary 194.168.4.100
secondary 194.168.8.100
you only have 9 numbers to try so its worth a go, I hope this helps because I know from experience what a frustrating pain in arse this can be.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

What is the primary DNS and secondary DNS?


There are two basic types of DNS - primary DNS and secondary DNS, which are generally applied to each newly registered domain. They are name server computers where the record of your domain name is stored. The information on both servers is identical. The two DNS values are usually configured by your ISPor hosting provider and given to you as a very important part of your domain registration order details.

In general, domain names can work with only one name server - the primary DNS. However, practice has shown that a domain name needs to have at least two name servers assigned in order to be available at any time. In case there is a problem with the primary name server, the secondary name server will be able to answer the online request for a particular domain. This back-up requirement has turned into an accepted Internet standard that prevents domain names from going offline.

you can get the dns setting by connecting a computor to the broadband the steps are
  1. goto 'start'
  2. goto 'run'
  3. type 'cmd.exe'
  4. in the commmand prompt type 'ipconfig' , it gives all the details about your broadband.
DNS error generaly means that there is nothing wrong with your system but ther must be a problem with your internet provider..
