It could be that your computer is not getting a valid dns from your router or dhcp/dns server. or it could be possible that you don't really have internet access for the moment.
try to power cycle first everything by turning the computer, router and modem off. then turn on your modem first , then your router, then the computer. check if you'll have the internet. if not, directly connect your computer to the modem and check if you can access the internet. if you're not online through the modem, contact your ISP to check if the line is ok. if you have internet access on the modem but not on the router. access the router's setup page and check if it's configured or not.
i'm not able to provide specific steps sicne you haven't indicated the model and the other information needed to properly isolate your concern but i hope this'll help you. if you still have problems. just ask me and kindly provide the modeL number of your modem and router and how may computers you have. then tell me your ISP.

ciao!

Check out your internet connection and its settings, whether it is dial up or broadband oriented.
then you have to know about your ip address of dns server in the network setting places.
you just ping the ip address of dns server following as...

go to start, then run and type "cmd", and it shows the command prompt. type as following format.

ping 10.10.10.5 and press enter key.. this is the sample ip address only. if it gets reply, your dns server is ok. you can use internet. suppose, it wont comes, ask your service provider or support for another or different ip address of dns to check it out.

Dns error


DNS stands for Domain Name Service, and it helps in accessing various websites on the Internet. An error regarding the DNS for any particular website usually implies the lack of an active Internet connection. The purpose of DNS is to simply translate the address that a user types on the web browser from the human language into the computer language.

DNS is used to resolve names to numerical IP addresses, which is needed to route traffic onto the Internet. Whenever a URL is entered into the browser, the beginning part is the website's domain name.

One Website Not Working: try contacting other sites on the Internet to see if the DNS error is particular to one website. If only one site is not working, the problem rests with the one website.

Computer Not Connected: another item to check when a DNS error shows up is to see if the computer is on the local network. Check to see if the home or office router can be reached from the computer. If not, the DNS error is from the computer not being able to connect to the local office or home network.

Internet Connection Down: if no websites are working, it might be because the Internet connection is down due to a faulty cable/DNS modem or the ISP is down. Power off and on the modem. If the DNS errors still persist, contact the ISP.

DNS Errors: in the vast majority of cases, DNS errors have nothing to do with DNS. DNS errors are usually one of the first symptoms of internet or wireless connectivity issues.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I cant get connect to a internet everytime i click internet explorer it say cant find a dsn error or internet explorer i have internect service at home and still cant get connected


are you sure its DSN and not a DNS error if the latter
Open your Internet Explorer browser. It doesn't matter what page your browser opens to as long as it is open. Click on the Tools option at the top of your Internet Explorer screen. Next, click on Internet Options followed by security Tab In the Security Tab, click on the Custom Level tab located at the bottom of the screen. Check the Medium security level drop down box once on the Custom Level screen. You will also need to browse through the options find the setting Access Data Across Domains and put a check in that box to enable the feature. Finally choose the Apply option and the exist the program. You might need to restart your computer for the changes to apply hope this helps

My son has a DNS error on his PS3 and cant get onto the internet....can you help a technophobe


this has helped me in the past.. i hope it helps you out

Been troubled lately by that pesky DNS error? Notice that your PS3 can still browse the net, but not log in? Happen to be a Roadrunner customer? Happen to have any other ISP with a crummy DNS server? Well then read on...

The main issue turns out to be a Roadrunner (or any other ISP's) DNS problem. The fix is simple. When configuring your PS3 network (regardless of wired or wireless), use the manual option. If you use DHCP, leave address resolution at automatic BUT CHANGE THE DNS SERVER ENTRY TO MANUAL.

I replaced the Roadrunner (or any other ISP's) DNS entries with addresses from the Open DNS project which is a free, secure DNS server that anyone can use. It's safe, easy, and works.

The DNS addresses are:

208.67.222.222 or/and 208.67.220.220

Once replaced, you should have no problem logging in.

Every time i ues internet exploror a error comes up and it reads internet exploror cannot display this page . help we have trided to reinstal it . use a new browser but we cant as the error comes up


It sounds like your pc cannot find your internet gateway or your router cant, check all cables starting at telephone socket.

Then goto START - CONTROL PANEL - NETWORK CONNECTIONS - Right Click and choose PROPERTIES then scroll down to INTERNET PROTOCOL - select that then choose PROPERTIES below. Then tick SELECT IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY then DNS ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY, this might work after a full shut down and reboot. NB if their are any settings on those last 2 pages write them down before changing them to automatic. If it does not work type in the old details before trying another solution.

What does DNS error mean?


DNS is an acronym that stands for Domain Name Service. A DNS error occurs when the Internet browser, such as Internet Explorer or Netscape, is unable to reach the web site in the address field. This can occur for various reasons, including an impaired Internet connection.

Facebook loading errors


It seems your system has a problem with Java updates or some spyware infection. First way to fix this problem is by reseting the IE7, Tools-IE options- Advanced- Reset-Reset All. The other permanent solution is to download Mozilla Firefox which is a better browser than IE.

Laptop finding router but no internet connection


If you can connect directly to your virgin Media Broadband and get internet then your laptop and broadband router is fine.

The wireless router appears not to have a DNS entry and you will need to add that manually.

I suggest that you connect directly to the Broadband modem, be sure you can get onto the internet. Once you have confirmed you can get onto the internet you need to get the dns information from your Broadband modem for later.

once connected directly to the broadband modem, click start>run> then type "CMD" then click open. you will get a prompt type the following and record the DNS Server ip addresses.

"ipconfig /all" then hit enter
this will display your ipaddress information but mostly you need the DNS server ip addresses.

once you have recorded them rerun the install, but this time instead of at the end of the install where it shows the Wireless router information you can modify or change it and add the DNS server entries.

Also by default most wireless routers ip address is 192.168.1.1 and you can type that from a internet explorer and change it from there as well. I believe it's no ID or user name and the password is admin.

Good luck

Internet explorer dont work


Does the IE window open? Does it try to connect, or even tell that 'Website found'? In this case, must have been hit by spyware. After removing spyware, sometimes DNS errors occur. So, try to use WINSOCKXPFIX.EXE (please google it to download).
