Windows 7: DNS Server not found

In order to give instructions on this, we need to know the make and full model number (including the revision) of your router as, although routers basically operate in the same way, the configuration is generally specific to each router.

Well, it's a Spanish router, although the settings are in english..

The make is Yacom
FW version: v.0.10.009
HW version: R01A
Name of manufacture: ARV4518PW-A-LF-LT

Sorry if it's the wrong details, it's on the back of my router.

Primary DNS Server: 208.67.222.220
Secondary DNS Server: 208.67.220.222

His Primary, and Secondary numbers don't look right, the:

Primary DNS Server: ....208.67.222.220.... Should be - 208.67.222.222...and
Secondary DNS Server: 208.67.220.222.... Should be - 208.67.220.220

There maybe instances where the third, and fouth set of numbers are transposed, but I have always seen them the same.

The "should be numbers" are what WindowsStar asked me to enter, and it hooked me right up!

So try the "should be's", and see if that makes a difference.



Here's a link to my thread:

Edit:
Also I did not change any router settings, the changes were made at the adapter settings.
Check the attachment in my post to see where.

Hi Dwarf, I still don't understand

I borrowed this from:
OpenDNS > Support > Knowledge Base > Additional OpenDNS nameserver addresses

Quote:
Additional OpenDNS nameserver addresses


OpenDNS nameserver IP addresses are:
  • 208.67.220.220
  • 208.67.222.222
Some routers and devices need a third or fourth nameserver IP address. Use these if necessary (identical service to the original two):
  • 208.67.220.222
  • 208.67.222.220
Updated: September 17, 2008

It shows their prefixes; 208 as compared to 220 are different than yours.

I realize these numbers are almost two years old, and you could have an updated set, but when I replaced the 208 with 220, I could not gain acess to the internet.

Could it be how your system is setup?

Awww....don't be so hard on yourself I've been know to make some doozies myself...Just ask my DW..


As I was looking around I came across an OpenDNS forum thread as late as December 8th, 2008,
See:
OpenDNS Community > Forums > restart OpenDns after HD crash

Where one user was using the 220 prefix, and didn't realize that ODNS had changed it to 208. So it was a valid number at one time.
He had some other problems that 208 didn't help, and I don't yet think are related to this thread.

After looking up 220.67.222.222 on IP Address Lookup It is presently a DNS out of The Republic of Korea

I have found another ODNS supplied by google if you don't mind working with them.
It's located 'bout fifty miles Northeast of Wichita, Kansas out in the middle of farm country.....gotta be the low overhead....

Zoom in on the map in satellite mode. The locator pin points to a farmstead. Its supposed to be faster, but I haven't checked it out yet.

IP Address Lookup
Primary:.....8.8.8.8
Secondary..8.8.4.4


May you have clear skies

Hi, thanks for the help, I tried changing the DNS servers to OpenDNS but still no help.
I have tried a lot of other servers, even my ISP's ones..

For some reason, I can't see an option to change my DNS Addresses in my router settings, and I can't connect to WAN, if that makes any difference.

I also tried Google's DNS a few weeks ago, still no help.

EDIT: I am using shared internet, the host computer is getting the internet using a wireless access point, and a ethernet cable is attached from the host computer to the router, and then another ethernet cable from the router to my laptop. If you need the host's ipconfig /all, just ask.
