    I have ready several threads and followed the steps, but they have no sovled my problem yet, so thank you for your patience and for guiding me personally....

    My neighbor and I are trying to set up a wireless router we can use in our shared office. She just installed the ATT U-vers and her MAC connected immediately.

    My windows vista laptop connects, but gets this diagnostic era:
    Cannot communicate with Primary DNS Server (fe80::845c:3ee4:d9c5:7e69%11).
    Network diagnostics pined the remote host but did not receive a response.

    My connections page says Im connected, but I can't load any web pages. I get errors like "Page Not FOund."


    Following a previous Thread, I ran an ipconfig/all.

    IPCONFIG/ALL Reveals:
    WIreless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:
    Physical Address......: 00-23-4D-85-74-40
    DHCP Enabled: Yes
    Autoconfiguration: Enabled
    Link-Local IPv6 Address: fe80::845c:3ee4:d9c5:7e69%11 <Preferred>
    IPv4 Address: 10.0.1.192 <Preferred>
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Lease Obtained: Montay, APril 05, 2010 9:40:39am
    Lease Expires: Montay, APril 05, 2010 4:29:28pm
    Default Gateway: 10.0.1.1
    DHCP Server: 10.0.1.1
    DHCPv6 IAID: 184558413
    DHCPv6 Clien DUID: 00-01-00-01-10-9B-1D-5F-00-72-94-37-BD

    DNS Servers: fe80::845c:3ee4:d9c5:7e69%11
    68.94.156.1
    68.94.157.2


    Earlier today a friend suggested I try adding the DNS servers 68.94.156.1 and 68.94.157.2 to my Internet Protocal Version 4 via Network Connections. You can see this now shows up in my IPCONFIG/ALL results.

    I can't cut and paste since my computer can't get online, so I'm using my husbands computer with a verizon aircard to communicate.

    Warning: I only kinda know what I'm talking about, so simple language is really appreciated. :)

    Thanks for helping me trouble shoot!

    Hi;Make and models of :
    modem
    router
    That 10.0 address looks to me like the modem address,maybe
    On your friends Mac,does it show a default gateway address etc in the mac version of ipconfig.
    If so,what is it.
    Also,take a peek at this just to make sure that addresses are being acquired that need to be
    From a Johnwill postConfigure DHCP for Windows Vista.
    1. Click on the Start menu, and select Control Panel.
    2. Click on Network and Internet. (Skip this step if you do not see this Control Panel item.)
    3. Click on Network and Sharing Center.
    4. Click on Manage network connections.
    5. Right click on Local Area Connection and choose Properties. If Windows say it needs your permission to continue, click Continue.
    6. Select Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) and click Properties.
    7. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.
    8. Select Obtain DNS server address automatically.
    9. Click OK to close the TCP/IP Properties window.
    10. Click OK to close the Local Area Connection Properties window.
    11. Click Close to close the Network Connections window.
    12. Click Close to close the Control Panel window.
    13. Restart your computer.

    What, if any, non-Windows firewall or security suite do you have on the machine? Is it correctly configured?

    Or, what one, if any, did you previously have on the machine?

    I followed the steps to configure the DHCP for windows Vista as listed, restared the computer, and still no luck.

    While loading a page in explorer, the error "waiting for res://iefram.dll/dnserror.htm...." appears

    Diagnostic says:
    There may be a problem with your Domain Name Server (DNS) configuration.

    Can't get to router, modem, or MAC while the neighbor is gone, but will get info when neighbor gets back.

    Thanks, WW

    I have Kaspersky, though I have disabled it while working on this issue today.

    How would I check to see if it is correctly configured?

    RTM (Read The Manual), I suppose. I would uninstall it and run the Removal Tool.

    Kaspersky:
    Can't uninstall it, only my company has the rights to re-install it (I don't have the disk) so I'd be stuck w/ out it....and probably in trouble.... Anything specific I should check for?

    It needs to trust or allow 10.0.1.x IP addresses. Not knowing the product I can't be of any more help than that.
