Windows 7: I get the DNS server not responding

I couldn't manage to obtain an ethernet cable, could a complete restore of the laptop to initial setup help? I haven't done much on my laptop, it's still new. I think i messed up when i installed windows from recovery disc that comes with it (i wanted to remove all software that comes preloaded ). And will the complete restore roll it back to factory setup?

You told me wired works. So DHCP, DNS etc works fine.
Wireless works as well... you tried another wireless access point. I think you just tried it in same building same problem!

You told me it was open.... no config needed. But you have to setup a proxy you tell me now. Proxy enables inside users to go outside.

Where did you fill in the proxy?

tracert 173.194.66.104
ping 173.194.66.104

works now?

I never knew Proxy was a must, i thought u just plugged in and surf the net but i was wrong. I had to set up proxy in IE9 and Opera and internet access was ok. But i don't know how to setup proxy in cmd, so ping to google doesn't work still. That's why i created the new thread in here

Is it a socks proxy server or just webproxy server (http and ftp)?

the output of ipconfig was the same in other machines, but i didn't try anything else coz i doubt if anyone could have allowed me on their machine. If i said it worked in other machines then i lied and i'm sure that's why u were not able to get to the problem. I'm sorry about that...and thank u again. And the other thread i put under network and sharing, proxy in cmd, any help?
