New wireless router but DNS isn't responding

Im new to this forum and really need some help!
I've just bought a new wireless router as we were having trouble with our old one cutting out etc, the only problem is with the new wireless router it keeps saying DNS isn't responding and there is no interent access but the wireless connects to the computers, but then if we plug our old one back in it connects straight away.
Can anyone help on how to get the new router working
Thankyou

If you have a modem i would suggest you resetting it, Then turning your new router on. This should allow them to sync up with each other.

If that doesnt work please post a screenshot of the IPconfig /all command.

Assuming that you have typed to valid DNS servers into the new routers settings for DNS servers.... Google DNS is a good place to start at 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

Have you tried going into Device Manager and disable the Microsoft Virtual WiFi miniport adaptor?

This Virtual adaptor sometimes causes connection and DNS issues when it's activated. It's only used for creating a hosted wireless network.

Other DNS problems can usually be sorted out by following some of the suggestions in the link below.
