    I am trying to set up a webserver with windows 2003.
    I have another computer with vista and another with windows 2000 and a wireless adapter. I also have a Trendnet wireless TEW-633GR wireless router.
    My problem is the 2003 computer will not connect to the internet. I get DNS Error Server not found. I believe it is somewhere in the router because the other computers connect just fine and if I disconnect router and connect 2003 computer directly to DSL modem it works just fine.
    I need some advice ab to what could be causing this problem

    Try these simple tests.

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:


    PING <computer_IP_address>

    PING <default_gateway_address>


    PING yahoo.com

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

    <computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

    <default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
