Windows 7: Problems with accessing my router

Problems with accessing my router

Hi All

I'm new in here so be nice with me :-)

I have read lot's of post today since I have a STRANGE issue. I'm using a netgear router which I suddenly canīt use it with my 2 pc's to browse (have tried both IE & Firefox) but I have a MAC computer where there is no issues at all.

I haven't done any updates, installed any programs since last night when it was working perfect. My PS3 told me as well this morning when I tried to connect it there was some DNS issues, but have no clue how to fix this or where :-)

I really hope that someone can help me since this is driving me nuts :-) Have tried to call my ISP but no help from them since itīs working on the MAC and as well if I donīt use the Router.

I'm quite familiar with the different terms but not an expert at all :-)

Have checked there is no proxy setup in the browser, have tried to make a diagnosis which is fine but again it said the DNS is not responding.

THANKS in advance for all your help & support :-)

Have a great Saturday.

olholm, lets go through this systematically.
1. Did "you" setup your router or did you have a service like your ISP or Bestbuy set it up?
2. Can you access your routers interface through a browser;should be either http:\\ or You will need the username most likely: admin, then the password: this could be anything you or someone made it. If you can get this far, we can move on. Let me know.

Hi bigwil

Thx so much for your message.

I set it up myself, and have been working for a year with any issues, but this morning it came.

I have been able to access the router interface with the cable, and have as well tried there to reset everything but the issue still remain
