Router - DNS not responding

I just recently setup my Internet with Comcast. I am posting this from my Modem.

Moved to a new place. Brought my router from old to new place and now Windows Network Diagnostics say
"The DNS server is not responding"

Router: Netgear Wireless-G Router WGR614v10

I restored factory settings, I upgraded the firmware, I tried wired and wireless, I tried connecting to a virtualmachine (I do not have another device to test the router unfortunately).

Hello bancosrs ,
Welcome,
You could try to flush the DNS and re register it via Elevated-CMD(Command prompt).
As well At the same time try to reset the Winsocket.
*
In Command Prompt window, type in following commands, and hit Enter after each one:
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
net stop "dns client"
net start "dns client"

Then I would suggest to "Power cycle the Modem & Restart the computer.
