Unhappy DNS Server Is Not Responding
Okay so, I have waited a whole weekend from posting on here because Toshiba was going to call me first thing Monday morning. Well, it's Monday and yes, I did talk to them. But the thing is, because it is "Advanced Troubleshooting", they were going to charge me $99.95. I was like "Um..No".

So, here I am. Since last Wednesday, I haven't been able to connect to the internet because my "DNS Server Is Not Responding". I have tried everything. Re configuring my IP Address, CMD Prompt, Restarting the linksys router and the modem, just about everything you can think of and no luck. I even tried re programming my router and it still isn't working.

Please help me. My system information is on my profile. I don't want to spend $100 just to get on the internet.

Thanks so much in advanced!

Did you try going into the adapter settings (TCP/IPv4) and specifying a known DNS? Like 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 for Google's DNS server.

Is any other device able to get internet access through your router?

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.


Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
