    My wireless linksys router is acting up on me again and i'm not sure how to handle this. I copied the error messages exactly as displayed. Sometimes the problem stops after i wait 30min or so but this is happening allot more frequently now.

    I started getting these errors in this order

    window failed to find domain name prpblems with DNS server


    windows confirmed that ''primary DNS server'' is currently online, but is not responding to connection attempts at this time.

    This usually means that a firewall is running somewhere between the two computers and is blocking ''domain''. windows has confirmed that windows firewall on this computer is correctly configured to allow this connection. However, a remote firewall might be blocking your connection.

    The following policiy might need to be adjusted to allow windows to connect:

    Policy provider: windows firewall firewall
    filter name: query user

    if the policy provider identified is windows firewall ,click for information about adjusting windows firewall settings. If a differnt policy provider has been identified, check the provider's documentation on how to adjust the policy settings.

    Reset the network adaptor ''wireless network connection''
    resetting the adaptors can sometimes resolve an intermittent problem.

    When Windows gives messages like that there are only two choices:

    a. laugh; :D or

    b. cry. :(

    The problem goes away sometimes after 30 minutes with you doing nothing, right? Can you still access the router (ping it, or access its config or status pages)? Have you tried a reset or power cycle of the router? If so, does that clear the problem?

    If it is a router problem about all you can do is make sure you have the latest firmware; then reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it. Next step after that is to replace it.
