A "DNS" server is a "DOMAIN NAME SERVER" -- you feed it a name, such as 'www.ebay.com', and it returns an IP-address. Then, the Internet "routes" your traffic to that IP-address, and eBay's web-server responds to your request, and sends a web-page to your IP-address.

A "DNS error" means either:
* there is no IP-address associated with the name, as you spelled it, e.g., 'ww.ebaay.co', or,
* your computer could not connect to the DNS-server, and so could not send the query,
* your computer does not know the IP-address of the DNS-server, and thus has "nowhere" to send your DNS-query.

How can i resolve DNS error? everytime we log on to internet explorer it says "servor could not be found or DNS error". we're on windows XP. thanks


how are you connecting to the internet? Cable/DSL or dial-up? If cable/DSL do you have a router?

shutdown the laptop, Reset the modem(power off wait 30 seconds, power on), reboot the laptop and try again

Hi hemgri,

the answer to this problem is unfortunately not that easy, because multiple reasons can cause this error.

It could be a simple DNS or DHCP service error, that can hopefully be fixed by restarting the services
  1. Go to Start>Run and type "services.msc" and click ok
  2. In the list look for "DHCP Client". Right-click and choose Stop
  3. Then right-click "DHCP Client" again and choose Start.
  4. Then look for "DNS Client". Right-click and choose Stop.
  5. Once again right click "DNS Client" and choose Start.
  6. Double-click your Internet Explorer button and all should be working now.
It is also possible that your DNS server is not working properly. What ISP do you have and what are your DNS servers? Try assigning a static DNS server.

  1. Go to Control Panel>Network Connections.
  2. Right-click on Local Area Connections and go to properties
  3. Double-click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
  4. Chose "Use the Following DNS server"
  5. Type in 4.2.2.2 on the first line and 4.2.2.3 on the second line.(These are Verizon's DNS server.) Click OK.
We are just going to use theseDNS to see if there is something wrong with your ISP's DNS. Try browsing and see if it works. If it does, you can also use one of the open DNS servers instead of the one's from your ISP, i.e. OpenDNS's free DNS servers: 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.

If this still doesn't work, then there is a possibility that your computer is infected with a virus. To do something about that would be too much for this forum, because it involves posting of 'HijackThis" logs. Have a look here, someone had the same problem. Try to find help there - the guys are really good and know what they're doing.

Please leave a comment, so I (and maybe others) can learn more about this.

Good luck!

DNS problem


Try setting up your network connection all automatically when connected to a router who acts as a DHCP server. DNS server addresses are also automatically configured via DHCP.

Make sure it can reach your router.
