Windows 7: DNS Server is not responding

First thing is first... you should always be able to have access to your router.


On the back of the router will be a RESET button.

You might need a bobby pin/paperclip... hold it in for up to 30 seconds. or until the lights on the front start to indicate that it has been reset.


to get into a belkin router.. this is the ip address:

http://192.168.2.1

User: admin

Pass: *ships with no password*

I had a belkin and i looked up your router and that is what it wil be after the reset. I would definitly hard wire into your router until we can fully cofigure it correctly.

If you would like helop, i'll be more than happy to remote desktop with you

Here is the Firmware as well. This could help you get your router working with Windows 7 a little bit better. I am not sure of your version nor of the version on this page.... So, its a shot in the dark.... but it does have instructions on how to do it.

Ok the details of your Ipconfig looks like it should work as you have all the important incredients showing correctly. Your tethering as well as your wireless connection. If you think the DNS is not correct, i'm not sure how you managed to get it, if you have set everything to auto-detect. Is that the case?

You said you don't have access to your router's control panel, how come? We might need to check if MAC cloing is enabled or disabled for your wireless adapter.

Well if it's the router issue, re-installing windows might still not do it for u, only time will tell i suppose. E ither way, let us know of the outcome.

I think he needs to check the time to live in the router. Are you using ppoe like ATT or sbc, or are you using cable like comcast? if you are able to connect at one moment, then unable to connect at another moment, as I mentioned before, check the TTL in the router.

I wrote how to reset the router a while ago, lets see how many more pages we got to go through before it gets done.

I know some people are scared to touch the hard ware but your going to need access to everything to make it work.

I think its the router myself...
