    Hi,

    I am unable to connect to internet using my wireles broadband 'BSNL Network.'

    The error message is : ' res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\shdoclc.dll/dnserror.htm '

    I browsed few support websites and understood to edit 'Hosts' file.

    I have more than one host file in my Laptop, confused which one should I Edit and what changes should I make.

    1) HOSTS c:\WINDOWS\I386
    2) hosts c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
    3) hosts.ics c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

    If any noble person can help me in this , I'll be greatful.

    Thanks

    I think you are getting a little ahead of your self editing the Host file. When you are connected to your network take the following steps.
    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt. When the command prompt Window opens type in: IPCONFIG /ALL
    Right click in the command prompt window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard. Paste the results back here. If (and I am assuming you are) posting from a different computer you can copy the results to Notepad and then copy the text file to a Flash Drive and take it to the computer that you are posting from.

    Your router is your DNS server. Therefore your problem is with the DNS server your router got from your ISP. You can ignore the DNS your ISP gives your router by using one of the free public DNS servers out there. (http://www.dslreports.com/faq/13222 will show you how.)

    By the way, turn off "Show friendly HTTP error messages." That's what the dnserror.htm page was. It often doesn't tell you what the real problem is. Turn it off in Internet Explorer (this is the browser that uses it) by Tools >> Internet Options >> Advanced.
